I am my own little nation/ Surrounded by a border of skin/ It keeps you out and me in/ -from James' Song of a Patriot


"Our recent weekend with James included having the choir prepare and perform some of his original pieces, as well as having James sing many of his songs as a soloist. We performed for both a very well-attended (and received) Saturday night concert and for Sunday morning worship. The choir had a great time preparing, rehearsing and performing, the respective audiences/congregation received the music with open hearts and gratitude, and, as always for me, collaborating with a friend and colleague was a treat."
