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.
