Festival 500, 2009 edition

From July 5 to 12, I participated in the 2009 edition of the biennial Festival 500 - Sharing the Voices with Newman Sound.



Sinéad O'Connor was one of my favourite musicians in the late 80s, early 90s, and I recently rediscovered her breakout disc Troy in my collection.  The first track on that album is Jackie, a lament on losing a loved one to the sea... a very topical idea with the recent deadly helicopter crashes off Newfoundland and in the North Sea.

Gulf War Song

I'm a big fan of the (somewhat short-lived) Canadian group Moxy Früvous.


Um Canto de Afoxé para o Bloco do Ilê (Ilê Ayê)

I just completed an arrangement of Caetano Veloso's wonderful "Um Canto de Afoxé para o Bloco do Ilê"  for SATBB (soprano, alto, tenor, baritone and bass) and bongos.

More Than Words

In 2008 I arranged More Than Words for Newman Sound Men's Choir. I had MP3 breakdowns of the parts available in this posting, but as of March 2009 I've redone the arrangement.

On Singing in a Male Choir

I am a founding member of Newman Sound Men's Choir, a splendid group of guys with a fabulous sound.  It is named for a scenic campground in Terra Nova National Park, a few hours from the choir's home in St. John's, Newfoundland.
