I Am Your SunlightTwo of my choral works, “O Magnum Mysterium” and “I Am Your Sunlight” (lyrics by Janet Jackson), are now available from Santa Barbara Music Publishing! I am very proud to be a composer in such amazing company, with other of their published composers being among my very own “choral heroes”: Eric Whitacre, Joshua Shank, David N. Childs, René Clausen, Javier Busto, Vytautas Miskinis… Both of my works are considered to be “level: difficult” and in their virtuoso catalogue. Don’t let that scare you, I can sing them myself so they can’t be too tricky…

On “O Magnum Mysterium”, SBMP writes: “This piece is best described as “Wow.” It is highly recommended for the mature choir and for a favorable acoustic setting.”

Another of my sacred pieces, “Agnus Dei“, was released last year by SBMP.

First performance of ‘Ej blir det natt’

My setting of Werner Aspenström’s poem ‘Ej blir det natt’ was recently premiered by Johannebergs Vokalensemble of Göteborg, conducted by Jan K. Delemark, as a part of the choir’s programme for the Feast of Christ the King on November 20, 2011. I was also the producer of the concert incorporating other works by composers such as James MacMillan, David Buckley and Will Todd.

Here is a live recording of the performance.
