  • Flanders Fields (Alfred Music)
  • Was Ever Love Like Thine (Paraclete Press)
    • ​A moving text by Samuel Wesley is the basis for this Lenten/Holy Week anthem. Scored for SATB a cappella, there is mostly homophonic writing with some mild dissonance that underscores the depth of the text.
  • Go, Go, to Bethlehem (Paraclete Press)
    • ​Highly rhythmic original carol with easy vocal parts and a contrasting central verse; Energetic piano part adds to the celebratory character.
  • Then and Now (Alfred Music)
    • ​​Perhaps best known for his setting of "In Flanders Fields," Paul's graceful melody unites with McCrae's beautiful poetry in this exquisite reflection of time gone by. A top-notch concert and contest choice.
  • Huron Carol (Alfred Music)
    • ​​Exquisite! As the plaintive melody begins with a soprano solo accompanied by oboe, the listener is immediately drawn to the haunting beauty of this Canadian carol. Mixed choir completes the opening chorus a cappella with lush harmonies and, finally, the piano adds its lyric voice to this setting of delicate beauty and refined expression for the Christmas season.
  • Donkey Riding (Cypress Music)
    • ​Imagine hauling timber out of the bush back in the 1930's.  The steam donkey was often used to do the heavy lifting - loading trains.  This is a classic Canadian folksong which has been brought to life with this spirited arrangement.
  • NEW: The Lake Isle of Innisfree (Cypress Music)

    • SATB & pianoCommissioned by Eagle High School; Seth McMullen, director

    • The classic poem by William Butler Yeats comes to life with Paul’s sensitive and joyful setting.
