Nancy WertschWelcome to the online home of American composer Nancy Wertsch.

Nancy’s compositional style is diverse and rooted in music for the voice, ranging in style from complex poly-choral music for advanced concert choirs to motets and two-part anthems for small church choirs, treble voices, children's choirs, art songs, and arrangements of spirituals and American songs. Her works also include instrumental pieces for brass and wind ensembles, choral music with instruments.  

Sample scores, audio, texts, and program notes are all available through this website.
