Hello, my fellow friends in hibernation! Can you feel it? You know, that subtle little thing in the air — riding just behind the final March rains and snows — telling us that indeed, the winter is over.
Ah! I am so ready for fragrant warm breezes, sunshine days, green trees, fields of flowers and birds singing in the air. Here in New York City, all that translates to walks in Central Park and long hikes and runs along the Hudson River Park. Those are my two nature options living in NYC, and let me tell you, I am grateful for them!

I can’t wait to get outside again! It has been a long and most definitely indoor winter for me. Time to break out! For me, Easter always heralds this breaking out, and it’s just around the corner again… in a couple of weeks!
So let me get to the point: While dreaming of the flowers and fresh air to come, this blog post is really a last-minute list of some great Easter and springtime sacred music available on watchfiremusic.com. For you singers still seeking that perfect Easter Solo for your church’s worship services, check out these songs! Enjoy!!

Song Repertoire – that’s the business I’m in. As a performer, and specifically as an inspirational singer, I am constantly searching for that next great piece of music that “fits” with the theme of the sermon, or highlights a text from Scripture, or tells a well-known Bible story in an inspiring way.
I am a hunter/gatherer and I love the hunt! Searching for each gem of a song is indeed a treasure hunt, always an adventure.
During the last four years it has been an exciting privilege to share a lot of great music in my position as soloist with an international congregation. I have received many emails from soloists, church musicians, musical directors and church music committees wanting to have a copy of my Repertoire List so that they might share this music with their own congregation.
