In his recent composition "Suite for the Panagia (Songs for the Theotokos)" Dr. Pierce blends liturgical chant with contemporary Gospel styles.  Dr. Pierce's latest compositional efforts show an exceptionally diverse style. Being well trained in the worlds of Jazz, Blues, Soul, Gospel and Classical Art Forms he has created new formulae that display an organic infusion across styles and genres.
