ROBERT COLLISTER

Photograph © Robert Collister

Having spent many years composing and arranging for the theatre (both musical comedy and the lyric theatre) Robert Collister brings a unique character to his abundant sacred music. His songs range from quiet melodic settings that gently support the text to dramatic, soaring classical works for the trained singer.

"Music to me is one of the most spiritual gifts given to mankind. Without question, music comes from a divine source. J.S. Bach wrote on many of his musical compositions 'Soli Deo Gloria,' -- 'To God Alone the Glory.' I also take this position in all that I do. I take no credit for the music I write. I only write what I hear and feel, the rest, 'Soli Deo Gloria.'" --Robert Collister

Please note that all download Mp3s are accompaniment versions (track minus the vocal line). The singer may perform with these tracks.
