Lorenz Publishing Choral Works
“He Keeps Me Singing” SATB with optional orchestra is just one of the many new sacred anthems published by Lorenz Publishing. Mary McDonald pairs the timeless hymns “Sweetest Name” and “My Redeemer.” This classic also features orchestration by Mike Lawrence.

“Three Songs of Emily Dickinson for Women’s Choir” by George L. Mabry was commissioned for Dr. Sharon Hansen and the Milwaukee Choral Artists’ 10th anniversary. This three-movement set is suitable for collegiate and professional women’s choirs. The accompaniment requires an accomplished pianist, and only mature singers will be able to handle the vocal demands of the choral writing and the emotional demands of the poetry.


Mark Hayes’ Sing Praise Project
Mark Hayes’ Sing Praise Project songbook and listening CD features 10 of Mark’s best creative efforts. Sing Praise Project is an eclectic blend of serious anthems, popular praise and worship songs, and some of Mark’s foot-stomping, hand-clapping gospel hymns. The songs are suitable for orchestra or and even keyboard accompaniment.


Bow and Bend
Written for the New York Women’s Chorus and the composer’s friend, John Morgan, Robert Dennis’ “Bow and Bend” for SSAA choir with keyboard is a collection of six songs colored by Shaker beliefs of personal revelation, equality between the sexes, celibacy, and dedication to work. The first and last movements are based on a Shaker hymn tune, and the rest of the music is original, reflecting the Shaker spirit of simplicity.
