I have had an account here for sometime, but it has not been active. I woke it up tonight by adding tracks and videos for many of my published choral works. (www.ecspublishing.com) I hope you enjoy them, and to hear from a choral director in this community who is interested in programming any of these works, or in my composing or arranging music for him or her anew. Thank you.
