Choir music – non-religious (secular)

This page needs a lot of updating – please search under the voicing that you’re looking for in the meantime

These pieces have non-religious texts, and can be performed in any context.

  • #choirsagainstracism is a project of free music to fight hatred and support refugees and related causes – almost all the pieces there are secular.
  • I’ve put up a new piece for which you can pay as much (or as little) as you want! It’s a 3-part round called “A Bicycle Wheel”, should be suitable for any level of choir.
  • Mary Morison – 4′, SSATB choir a cappella, fairly easy. Copies £1.50, PDF £25.
  • New! Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep – SATB (no divisi), 3′, ideal for a memorial event but would also make a lovely concert piece. Single copies £1.50, PDF £25. Listen below:
