“Mr. Pew is a very talented composer whose experience and artistic maturity demonstrate that he will enjoy a long career and, therefore, is deserving of genuine support. I can confirm that his talent, work, and humility, are of the highest quality.”

Featured Cantatas

“In Douglas Pew we have a fresh new voice in contemporary sacred music. His craftsmanship in the art of composition is readily demonstrated in his outstanding cantata “The Good Shepherd”. In this cantata we hear his superb work in the writing of hymns, solo arias, and choruses. His writing for voices and instruments is filled with sensitivity and beauty, always complementing the spirit of the text. We have much to look forward to in the future compositional output of this exciting new American composer.”
— Dr. Craig Jessop, Former Director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir

“Doug’s sacred music is deeply spiritual. It arises not simply from a composer’s desire to express themselves, but from a more profound need to express truth. It walks the fine, beautiful line between the perfection of the divine and the limits of human spirituality to that magical point where the veil between them grows thin. Performing Doug’s sacred music is exercise for the heart and a feast for the soul.”
— Dr. Carlton Monroe, Music Director, St. Thomas Episcopal Church
