This past spring, I began composing some new hymn tunes as a way to try something different compositionally. There are many great hymn texts, so it was not hard to find ones which inspired me. However, I generally ended up choosing ones which are associated with older tunes so that this project could lend a fresh perspective to the text. I am excited to finally share the finished hymn tunes after working on them with many great mentors in music. I hope you enjoy them, and do let me know if you’d like to inquire about using them. More information can be found on the compositions page, and a preview of the tunes can be found here. Happy singing!
