Plans & ideas

for musical works

There are always far too many ideas to pursue. Following the completion in November 2020 of a large-scale piece for choir and organ, The Blake Lamentations, I am having to divert into my editing and writing for a month or so, but I am hoping soon to find space to compose:
• a cycle of short pieces for solo piano, Encroaching Shadows;
• a short work for SSAATTBB choir, Gleam;
...and possibly even think about a few longer term ideas that are champing at the bit:
• a piece for string orchestra, Exultation;
• my second canticle collaboration with Euan Tait, The Song Bleeds;
• a song cycle–melodrama for ’cello and baritone.

Other longer term projects include chamber and vocal works and a work for string quartet. But there are only so many hours a day to pursue my various jugglings. However, I can always divert happily into commissioned works, and if you would like to discuss any such possibilities, or would like to discuss any of my works completed or in progress, I would be delighted to hear from you. Please do get in touch.
