I am very proud to be part of Santa Barbara Music Publishing's catalogue! My work A Universal Dream for SSAA choir, djembe, and piano was just released! This work was commissioned by the Sister Singers Network for the 2010 festival "Our Kind of Sound." There is text in there both by myself and by Meta Hellman, and I think you'll really enjoy it!

Here's a description from the website:
"The text expresses the universal message of liberty and freedom. A unique piece for women, it is both theatric and ethnic in its style, with a rhythmic djembe drum and a text that includes various translations of the word “liberty.” To properly realize its dramatic impact, it is recommended for the large choir."
