Description of Style

My compositions are almost exclusively used for sacred music. The children's masses consist of child-friendly, easily singable, thoroughly tonal melodies in song form, with guitar accompaniment based on chords and some instrumental voices. The choral works are learnable for a normal amateur choir  in a reasonable amount of time and easy to understand for the church visitors. With the proclamation of God's words in the center, the choral music is often located in the tonal range, mostly homophon, rarely polyphonic.
