For the last 12 or so years, I have been sharing my talent with Church of the Resurrection’s (Ellicott City MD) Music Ministries. I have made many good friends who have become family to us. I can be found on many 9:00am services under the direction of Liz Coolahan, a gifted and energetic director of the Contemporary Music Group (they still use “Folk Group” but that conjures up visions of the great Folk Music Scare of the 1960’s). The icing for me has been my friendship and collaboration with a brilliant pianist, accompanist, composer, singer and music director of Resurrection, one Dr. Stephen Lay.
Together Stephen and I worked on “the greatest of these” which is a full length CD project of his, containing many of his original compositions. I had the pleasure of playing, engineering, and producing this project. The profits of the CD sales of “the greatest of these” went to the Church’s St. Paul School. CD’s can still be ordered on Stephen’s website:
