Confitemini Domino
This setting of the well-known Psalm is both thoughtful and reflective in nature. With appropriate ranges and tonal centers, it is an excellent vehicle for introducing SSA part singing to a developing treble choir, while challenging enough for a more advanced choir to demonstrate musical prowess.

A Peaceful Gloria
Exquisitely expressive, this work pulls the initial text of the Gloria apart and treats each section differently, each beautifully and peacefully. Greg then combines the three sections, bringing together heaven, earth and man to a peaceful, quiet close. There are aesthetic experiences to be found in this work.

There is Sweet Music Here

Triumphant Gloria
This Gloria is bold and exciting. Alternating voices create an antiphonal effect. The ending is dynamic and strong. Easy to learn, but powerful in approach. Don't pass this one up. Add the trumpet trio if you want added color and power. (Medium Easy)
