Agnes Liturgy

Named after my departed Mother who was and is my spiritual mentor.

It was written over a 2 week period in late 2008. I am not a lyricist, so all words are from the traditional liturgy. As a composer I speak in melody and the Agnes liturgy is my voice. Performing it brings me joy and I hope it has a similar effect on the congregation. Agnes can be performed by a single musician or an ensemble.

The Agnes Liturgy is performed with a roving list of musicians that may or may not include:  acclaimed jazz vocalist Nancy Harms, Dana Thompson (of Hothead Fiasco and Minor Planets), Hal Longley  (of Century Brass and Chooglin’), Bob DeBoer (GST and Chooglin’), Tony Watercott  (GST), and Joe Cline  (GST).
