Compositions

Here are some samples of my work, past and present.

Composing Sacred Music: A New Generation

Festival of the Sacred Arts 2023, Edinburgh Festival Fringe

​A professional choir, conducted by Calum Robertson, performed three of my recent choral compositions as part of a programme of work by young Edinburgh composers.

You can download scores here and here.  Please let me know using the 'Contact' form if you are performing them, as I would love to know.

"The Lord is Near" was also recently sung as part of Evensong at Old St Paul's, Edinburgh, conducted by Calum Robertson.

Let There Be Light
This anthem for SATB choir and organ was commissioned for the HMC/IAPS Enlightened Education conference in Edinburgh, in October 2022. I was privileged to be mentored by Sir James MacMillan during the composition process.  You can watch a performance here.

Fugue in C Aeolian
I have always been fascinated by fugues. This 2023 piece for solo piano experiments with modern harmony within the traditional fugal form. Listen here.

The Seven Days of April
This piece for string orchestra was inspired by a poem of the same name, by the Orkney poet, Piers Cain. It was selected for the George Mackay Brown Centenary Celebration and was performed by the Orkney Camerata in St Magnus’ Cathedral in March 2022. Listen to their performance here.

For Uli and Peter
A duet for piano and violin, composed for Peter Evans (my piano teacher) and his wife Uli.  Here is a link to their beautiful performance.

 

ALBUMS

I made these albums when I was much younger and less developed as a composer, but I am still proud of some of the ideas.

Lock & Key
Composed and recorded at home during the second UK Covid-19 lockdown in 2021, here I enjoyed experimenting with electronic instruments.  “The Lockdown” and “Golden Days” were broadcast on BBC Radio Ulster’s Jazz World with Linley Hamilton.

Friends
I composed, performed and recorded this album at home during the first UK Covid-19 lockdown in 2020. I experimented with a mixture of styles -  jazz, blues, and even some baroque and classical - and mainly acoustic instruments.
