Composer's Choir directed by Daniel Shaw

I began a project in 2014, in which Daniel Shaw directed professional performances by his "Composer's Choir" of some of my choral works in New York.
Most recently, in 2016, they performed Moonlight on Sea
which is a setting of a poem by my father.



The score of Moonlight on Sea is available at

and
The Park on Sunday
which is a setting of another poem by my father.
