His best-known work, Voices of Light (1994) is an oratorio scored for soloists, chorus, orchestra and a bell. It was inspired by Carl Theodor Dreyer's silent film The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928). He also composed many horror and thriller film scores, including Shock Waves (1977), Don't Go in the House (1980), Eyes of a Stranger (1981), The Prowler (1981), Dead of Winter (1987), Blood Rage (1987), Sister, Sister (1987) and Dark Tower (1989). He also contributed to the soundtrack of Liberty! The American Revolution (1997).
In a recent New York Times article, Einhorn discussed his use of hearing loops to enjoy concerts with his hearing aid.
