*NEW* I am currently working on two pieces:

All will be Well

This is a setting of words by Julian of Norwich for a cappella SATB choir and 4 solo voices (SATB).

Songs of a Day

The second piece is a choral and orchestral setting of poems for
1. Afternoon - (this is complete)
2. Evening
3. Night
4. Morning Sunrise
It is a sort of choral symphony scored for conventional full orchestra and SATB choir.

Written in February 2024 'Swan Creek' is a new partsong
based on the tune I wrote for the Concertino (below), a setting of a poem by Williston Fish.

Written between January and February 2024 'Concertino for Cor Anglais, Marimba and Strings' is a new light orchestral work
