Printed Music

I get many requests for the sheet music for the songs from my albums. 24 of the most popular of these songs are now published in the series ‘8 Lyrical Pieces for Oboe, Volumes 1-3’ (published by TrevCo Music), ‘8 Lyrical Pieces for Bassoon and Piano, Volumes 1-3’ (published by TrevCo Music), and ‘8 Lyrical Pieces for Flute and Piano, Volumes 1-3’ (published by Really Good Music). The arrangements for oboe and flute may also be played by other treble clef instruments such as violin, and the arrangements for bassoon may be played by other bass clef instruments such as cello. All of these arrangements are shorter than the versions on my CDs.

Volume 1 contains the music for Begin Sweet World, Lullaby, Sweet Rain, Return to Inishmore, Infant Dreams, The Hills of Glencar, Morning Song, and Karuna.

Volume 2 contains the music for Hymn, Angelico, Elegy, Forest Hymn, Song for Catherine, Lady of the Lake, Folk Song, and In Lovely Blue.

Volume 3 contains the music for The Rose of Kildare, Spectrum of Violet, Homeland, The Secret Rose, Earth Prayer, Intermezzo, Innisfree, and Under the Moon.

In addition to this, Luyben Music publishes a collection called ‘6 Pieces for Clarinet and Piano’ which contains the music for Feast, Begin Sweet World, Infant Dreams, Morning Song, Open Sky and Lullaby. They also publish a collection called ‘8 Lyrical Pieces for Clarinet and Piano’ which contains the music for In Lovely Blue, Sweet Rain, Return to Inishmore, Song for Catherine, Folk Song, The Hills of Glencar, Forest Hymn and Angelico.

Vocal Rhythm Etudes

 My 12 Vocal Rhythm Etudes (formerly known as ‘Rock Etudes’) are now sold by  Really Good Music (www.reallygoodmusic.com). Each set includes a CD with slow and fast versions of the etudes. These are advanced rhythm studies used in many universities to teach complex contemporary rhythms influenced by jazz, rock, Indian, African, Brazilian and contemporary classical music.
