“And the closing… [the final piece of Herstory III]… is perfect…” (IAWM Journal)

Supplication is a simple piano arrangement of the final prayer of the composer’s monodrama on the life of Joan of Arc that is entitled Herstory III: Jehanne de Lorraine and is published by Arsis Press and recorded on the Owl label. The piece is also arranged for chorus with the title God Be In My Head.

Extraordinary Measures is a collection of 33 easy-to-intermediate pieces by contemporary Boston-area composers published by the League-ISCM, Boston.

The debut performance of the collection was given at a special concert by the New England Conservatory Extension Division in 1995, with pieces being played by conservatory students, faculty, League-ISCM, Boston, board members, and some of the composers themselves. ISCM president Michael Finnissy also programmed music from the collection during his travels in the winter and spring. The book is available from the League-ISCM, Boston.
