Richard Toensing (b 1940) has had his works performed in major concert venues throughout the United States, including premieres at Alice Tully Hall and the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. His music has also received performances at festivals in the U.S. and abroad, including the Aspen Music Festival, the International Contemporary Organ Music Festival, the International Wind Ensemble Conference and the VII Foro Internacional de Musica Nueva.

The composer's compositions span a variety of styles, from the gestural, free atonal work of the '60s and '70s to a renewed interest in various forms of diatonic music in more recent years. He has written numerous works for chorus, chamber music in various genres and works for large ensembles. His music has been influenced by Russian Orthodox chant, Lutheran chorales, and by the works of other composers such as Schütz, Gesualdo, Varèse, Finney and Pärt.
