List of choral works
- Concord is conquered
- Gales of evening
- Had I but the torrent's might
- In the rose's fragrant shade
- Love and Folly were at play
- Magnificat and Nunc dimittis in C
- Round thy pillow
- Sweet warbling bird, with dulcet note
- This bubbling stream not uninstructive flows
- To a friend sincere
- While I listen to thy voice
- Who has peerless Kitty seen?
- Why thus enraged, ye tribes profane?
