Make Music Sweet for SATB choir and piano (sheet music) is a three-movement work which uses the poetry of James Joyce from his collection Chamber Music. These three movements speak of love and nature, of cool valleys, and speaking to the heart.
Movements II and III are the winner of the Choral Horizons New Music Reading session sponsored by The Singers under the direction of Matthew Culloton as well as Graphite Publishing. The entire set was premiered in February 2010 in Minneapolis by The Singers. In addition there was a Performance by The Singers under the direction of Matthew Culloton during the Choral Horizons Reading Session – May 11-12, 2009 – University of Minnesota, MN
