"O Sacrum Convivium"
Petrich's setting of O Sacrum Convivium is a cappella communion motet. It is cast in a serious contemporary idiom, but its restrained dissonances are carefully controlled and voiced to keep the work within the reach of practically any four-part choir.

"Music for St Thomas More: Prayer & Epilogue"
The highlights in the trumpet portions of Te Deum are not from the Baroque repertoire, but from Roger Petrich of the present day. The two pieces by this composer are substantial works that show the performers in their best light. Especially moving are the slow movements, highlighting Neebe's wonderful legato playing and crystal clear sound. [Lee Wiemer, assistant professor of music, Lambuth University, Jackson, TN.
