Charles Hogan ~ Composer

The love of texts drives Hogan to compose, especially the enjoyment of psalms.  In addition to frequent and regular writing for Faburden, he occasionally composes in response to commissions, such as “Teach Us,” (available for listening below) commissioned by the Atlanta Royal School of Church Music Training Course.

Hogan writes in a style that is always sensitive to the inflection of the text and is often harmonically adventurous.  Current projects include a setting of the Angelus and an edition of psalmody for evening prayer services.

Compositions have been performed by choirs from venues throughout North America and Britain including Washington National Cathedral, Trinity Church (Princeton), and St. Asaph’s Cathedral (Wales).

“[Hogan’s] Preces are filled with beautiful moments – some transcendently so.”

Dr. John Hooker, The Journal of the

Association of Anglican Musicians
