    Fear Thou Not" was commissioned by the Swedish women's vocal ensemble "Les Jolies" (gold medalists in 2002 Choir Olympics. The piece depicts how man can change from doubting to believing, led by the Father's voice which both comforts and admonishes.

    My music is my own and I have never tried to be original. That has always been my motto and I have only tried to use music to express all the feelings which life has to offer. This has led people to describe my music as ‘so sad that it sounds like birds who have lost their wings' but also as ‘the happiest classical music that we have ever heard‘. My compositions are almost all sacred. They express not only my own faith but also my appreciation and respect for the timeless texts that have been used for centuries and centuries.
