Coventry Carol

Check out the out the sumptuous treatment given to this famous plaintive carol. Sophisticated and lush harmonies are easy to sing with Sam’s voice leading skills. Listen to the premiere performance by the Vancouver Cantata Singers (one of Canada’s finest choirs).

The Monkeys Lost Their Keys

Sam is up to his usual mischief and monkey-business with this clever choral composition.  The poem by Duncan Shields is hilarious with witty puns and invented words.
