Over the past 50 years I have written about 4,800 compositions and arrangements – lyrical, tonal, neo-classical, modal, funny, satirical, religious, pensive and sad – for musicians of many kinds.

This catalogue aims to help you find whatever you may be looking for, whether you are performers, impresarios or audience.

Please enjoy, and share!

To Cassandra for 8 cellos

Description of video:

This is an instrumental extension of my vocal setting of my father’s translation of Ronsard’s poem “A Cassandre”
Performed by the Budapest Scoring Cellos

Darling, come see the rose so red,
Which this morn timidly had spread
Her mantle to the eye of day.
Come see if she has lost this e’en
Her crimson pleated robe’s soft sheen,
That same blush which on your cheek plays.

It was a lover and his lass – a modern madrigal – for SATB choir

Description of video:

A jolly parody of Shakespeare’s song by the same name but using my Bell Dance as the melody to represent mobile phones. These pretty city folk walk down supermarket aisles chatting to each other on their mobile phones instead of through the green corn fields of Shakespeare’s original. It is performed here by the Composer’s Choir under Daniel Shaw.
