I will attempt to keep this section of my website up-to-date with resources that I use on a regular basis. In doing so, I hope my website will come to be a useful resource for you.
As a starting point, have a look at this list of songs, grouped according to where they might be used in the liturgical year.
A number of websites that I find useful:
- Bruce Prewer
- Peter Kearney
- David MacGregor
- Leigh Newton
- Dakota Road Music
- Sibelius Software Ltd
- Openbook Publishers
- Lutheran Church of Australia
Useful Print Resources
I've got a huge library of print resources I use... All I have to do now, is narrow down a list of these for inclusion here!
Doctor of Divinity awarded to
Last night, December 6, at the University of Divinity's Adelaide Graduation night at the Glynde Lutheran Church, I was awarded the University's highest academic award.
The citation opened by praising my "sustained and distinguished contribution to theological scholarship over the last fifty years through original musical composition that advances the celebration of Christian, communal life and identity."
While feeling a little overwhelmed by the grandeur of the event & the impressive outfit provided for me to wear, I was very pleased to receive the award, as it recognises the importance of the music of Christian communities. The award is not just for me but for the many writers & musicians who have contributed so much over many years.
