About Robert

I began composing music in the style of the Sacred Harp in 2006, and through Sacred Harp "composium" singings organized by Jesse Pearlman Karlsburg and Aldo Ceresa, and through the advice of too many Sacred Harp composers to name here, I gradually learned about the style.  My studies in Sacred Harp composition culminated in an article in 2009 on how to write music in the Sacred Harp idiom, Sacred Harp Harmony: A Part-Writing Primer for Shape-Note Hymnody.

I welcome any comments on my music.  Email me at
