Music composed by Teresa Cobarrubia Yoder, ASCAP

Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth. – Psalm 96:1



Love, justice, hope, sorrow, thanksgiving, disappointment, forgiveness and joy of the Resurrection…  Those prayers that surface from heart, mind and lips inspire a creative and spiritual expression in song.   From being published through Oregon Catholic Press, Paraclete Publishers, World Library (collection will be released in 2018), and Sheet Music Press to collaborating with Delores Dufner OSB, M. D. Ridge and Adam Tice on  new hymns to composing a number of easy piano duets, it has  been a humbling and unexpected journey.

May:  ‘Twas in the Moon of Wintertime (octavo and a beautiful recorded performance) is in OCP’s May choral packet subscription series.  This SAB arrangement was featured at Virginia Wesleyan’s 2017 Sacred Music Summer Conference:  A Worship and Arts Event.

June: The hymn of praise and thanksgiving, “Mission Song of Love and Faith” was premiered- dedicated to Immaculate Conception Catholic Church’s pastor, Fr. Sean Prince on his 5th anniversary to the priesthood.  The concertato arrangement (SATB, organ, strings, brass and timpani) includes an energetic brass fanfare.

December: The Williamsburg Women’s Chorus will be premiering “There’s a Song in the Air.”

In 14 months, 24 pieces have been published or accepted by publishers. In two years, I have composed five major works: a Catholic Mass setting and four concertatos. Stay tuned.  The work continues…
