Commissioning a Piece of Liturgical Music
Commissions are unique and powerful gifts to communities celebrating major milestones, individuals celebrating Sacraments (marriage or Holy Orders) or simply to communities or ensembles in need of a song for a particular ritual moment or occasion.
The commissioning process is a very intentional one which takes many months (sometimes as long as a year) to complete. Recent commissions have included a Communion song for a parish reflecting the spirituality of its patron, a piece celebrating the anniversary of the foundation of a major religious order, and a Psalm for a Papal Mass. Throughout the process, Tony works closely with the person or community commissioning the piece to craft something that is meaningful for the community and/or occasion.
If you are interested in commissioning a piece, contact Tony directly with inquiries. Cost and timeline vary depending on the scope of the project and the amount of arrangement necessary. Due to the time and energy invested in this process, Tony typically takes on a maximum of two commissions per year.
