Ellen's spiritual songs available for weddings, church services and other events - November 21, 2006

Numerous brides and grooms, as well as ministers and church musical directors have programed performances of my songs as part of their sacred events. This is a great honor and makes me very proud.

They've asked for performances of my settings of "i thank You God" and "i am a little church(no great cathedral" by E.E. Cummings, "Human Beings Suffer" by Seamus Heaney, "Inside My Heart" by Daniel Pociernicki, and "Traveler's Prayer" which I translated and adapted.

If you have a special event coming up and would like to program my music, please feel free to e-mail me, and we'll figure out how to get the music to you and your event.
