The compositions of Bill Heigen reflect his diverse talents as a singer, conductor, composer, and performer. His choral works are finely crafted and they have a beauty of lyricism with a most interesting harmonic palette. At times, there are challenges, but there is a direct communication which results in music that is very moving for the performers and for the listeners. Bill Heigen is a very fine composer and beloved colleague. His music is a treasure.
