What people are saying about the music...

"What a joy to see things so beautifully conceived, and written wonderfully for the voice!"
—Frederick Swann, President,
American Guild of Organists
"Impressive for both their artistry and accessibility, Edward Green’s choral works are the perfect blending of text and music. Each is a true gem. Ranging from the shimmering This is the Land the Sunset Washes to the dramatic The Heavens are Telling, these selections are refreshing additions to any choral library, and I know from direct experience that students love to perform these pieces."
Paul Sanders, Professor of Music
The Ohio State University at Newark
"Ed Green's choral works have both a feeling of rightness and originality... The harmonic language is at once modern and conservative, no mean feat for any composer."
—Dennis Tucker, in The American Organist, December 2000

"Ed Green's music is aurally refreshing, melodically alluring, vocally approachable and harmonically stimulating, but those may not be its best features. Beyond these evidences of fine craftsmanship Ed's music is aesthetically in tune with its text; there is a sense of purpose and proportion that both invites and challenges performers and listeners alike."
Dr. Michael Shasberger,
Adams Chair of Music and Worship,
Westmont College, California


The Heavens are Telling SATB, piano (score image) SSAA, piano (score image)
  "Edward Green's The Heavens are Telling breathes new life into a very familiar text, Psalm 19:1-4. Directors will jump to use it in either the liturgical or concert setting. Choirs will be challenged yet given delightful surprises. It is a welcome addition to the choral literature."
—Carl Maultsby, Artistic Director, Rejoicensemble

This is the Land the Sunset Washes SATB, piano (score image)

  "A beautiful piece of impressionism. A gorgeous piano part supports rolling lyric lines in the choir for a truly lovely effect. A real pleasure. I enjoyed it immensely."
—Catherine Sailer, Director of Choral Studies,
University of Denver Lamont School of Music

What Greater Love?

      William Shakespeare's As You Like It
Treble Choir, piano (score image)

  "These settings have a fresh lyricism and achieve that which is most important: a true junction of poetry and music. While accessible to younger singers, they will be enjoyed as well by more experienced ones."
