Shalom. On this site you'll find my original compositions for accompanied and a cappella choruses, soloists, and duets. Texts are in English, Hebrew, or both and are adapted from verses in the Tanach, prayers in the Jewish liturgy, and a wide variety of ancient and contemporary Jewish poetry. In difficulty, the choral pieces range from works appropriate for congregations and childrenís choirs to pieces written for established ensembles. I hope you enjoy perusing the catalog of music, where you can listen to audio samples and see performance suggestions. You can order the sheet music at oysongs.com.
