VOICE + PIANO

Although the majority of my output has been focused on instrumental music, I have, over the years, written a fair amount of vocal music as well, mostly sacred choral, but also including a few solos for voice and piano. Unfortunately, some of that music is unavailable due to copyright restrictions on the source poems. Here is what is available.

Five Songs from The Treasure of Cathay | Book and Lyrics by Nancy Grobe | Music by Richard E Brown
