An award-winning documentary film which I wrote the music for has aired multiple times on PBS:
“A Friend Indeed: The Bill Sackter Story” is the moving account of a mentally challenged man who became a national hero for the disability community. Click here to explore my music.
You can read more about this suite and hear sound clips here. Please note that you can perform the entire suite of six carols as written, or you can select excerpts from the suite and fit them into your program as you like.
Two of the six carols are scored for flute and guitar (without viola), and would be ideal for flute & guitar duos. But if you'd like to perform the entire suite, just grab a violist and make some beautiful, fun music!
