An Eagle’s Tale for Orchestra (Bird Suite No. 5)
With the final movement of Bird Suite I tried to capture a typical day in an eagle’s life, with some soaring, hunting, relaxing on a tree branch, flying off into the sunset – the usual eagle-ish activities.

A Christmas Wish for Brass Quartet, SATB Choir, Sleigh Bells and Organ
A few months ago I saw a forum post asking about Christmas music for brass and choir. There weren’t a lot of suggestions, so I decided to write something!

If you have a Christmas gig for brass quintet, your horn player can take a break and play sleigh bells! The sheet music is available at www.musicforbrass.com
