Whether you need an anthem for a specific text or event at your church, a special concert piece, a work to commemorate a life, or just want to be a part of the creative process, you can commission a work from a living composer. The act of commissioning not only gives you a chance to have a piece written specifically for your needs, but also makes you a supporter of new artistic endeavors. If you are interested in having me write a piece for your ensemble, please feel free to contact me so that we can talk about your needs. You can suggest a text or a scripture for me to set, or a theme that you would like me to explore in a newly composed text.
A good basic read on commissioning a composer, including what I consider a fair system for calculating expected fees, can be found here. I want to collaborate with you and work within your budget, so please feel free to contact me with your needs and parameters.
