The tool above is a quick way to find some available CDs and MP3s. Below I have listed a complete annotated discography which links to Amazon or some other online retailer if you click on the CD covers. Most of these releases are available on iTunes as well; you can search there to find them. And you can visit the book of days or the perform part of the site to find lots of free streaming music.
Thanks for listening!

this is the 2009 release of Hildegurls' Ordo Virtutum, my 1998 collaboration with Lisa Bielawa, Kitty Brazelton, and Elaine Kaplinsky. The recording was made right after our Lincoln Center Festival performances, which were directed by Grethe Barrett Holby.

My Heart is Trembling was written for Rob Voisey's compilation of sixty one-minute long pieces by sixty different composers. The 2004 and 2005 iterations of the project are on this double CD. Put it on random play!
Be/Hold is on Messiah Remix.
Wolf Chaser is on the compilation Lesbian American Composers. YES, the cover is cheesy, and I wish such compilations weren't really necessary, but just a couple of months ago, a young lesbian composer told me it meant a lot to find this CD when she was coming up, so I'm glad I participated...
The harp version of Play Nice is on Elizabeth Panzer's 1999 CD Dancing in Place, which also includes music by Gustavo Matamoros, Eleanor Hovda, Kitty Brazelton, Richard Einhorn, Wendy Chambers, and Elizabeth Panzer.
Landscaping for Privacy is on Emergency Music, along with twisted tutu's performance of Randall Woolf's Your Name Backwards, and music by Pamela Z, Tina Davidson, Judy Dunaway, Ed Harsh, Jack Vees, Ken Valitsky, Victoria Jordanova, and Nick Didkovsky.
I wrote the music on a collaboration with Juliana Luecking called Dream Cum Go Down.
