Commissioned by Michael Morley and William McCoy for the First United Methodist Church Of Fredericksburg Organ Restoration Benefit Concert
In two movements, the first serene and spatial, the second lively and contrapuntal.

SWP 166

Commissioned by the "President's Own" Marine Band Tuba/Euphonium Quartet.

"Morning Rain is a refreshing departure from the predictability of the current tuba quartet genre. Naylor exploits the more lyrical side of the tuba and euphonium, and uses it to paint a picture of sheer beauty. This piece is a joy to prepare and perform!"
 - Mark Thiele, Tuba, "President's Own" Marine Band Tuba/Euphonium Quartet

SWP 100

Six settings from Claudia Emerson's 2006 Pulitzer set Late Wife. For soprano or lyric mezzo, 2 fl, cl, a. sax, bn, vc, 3 perc. Approx 25 minutes in length.

"Our Voices, For Now Sustained" is a beautifully complex composition that moves beyond any common notion of setting poetry to music. The music and the language as it measures against the score fuse to bring to the surface the poems' emotional content as well as the more subtle musical characteristics of words themselves. I am honored that Craig Naylor would choose to focus on the poems in Late Wife."
 - Claudia Emerson, Arrington Distinguished Chair in Poetry, University of Mary Washington.

SWP 152 S
SWP 152 P
A melding of The Mass to Beg For Peace from the Liber Usualis, Sephardic chant from Yom Kippur, all combined in Arabic rhythms.

"We had the pleasure of performing Peace Dance in the locations that provided the stylistic inspirations - Iberia and West Africa, and the work was well received in both. Peace Dance proved to be a constant that assimilated with the general musical ambience of the Moroccan and Spanish cultures. I found Peace Dance to be clear in form, innately cellistic and reflective of Dr. Naylor's ability to create a work that has a self-identifiable uniqueness."
 - David Gee, cellist, Gee-Mackey Duo

SWP 167

A serene introduction leads to a wildly raucous and jazzy conclusion.
