I decided it was time I did a bit more writing of concert music, rather than worrying about trying to composer more commercially-orientated music for media. So, here is a short piano piece that I recently came up with.
The score is available either to preview or buy from score-exchange
This is a Jazz-inspired arrangement of the popular carol. The first verse is as one would expect, but the second should give the audience a surprise.
I wrote this piece in 2004 for an amateur choir I was conducting at the time. Unfortunately, they struggled a little with it due to the number of parts it splits into; so, in the end we didn’t perform it and so far it has remained performed. So if anyone fancies giving it a go, please do let me know.
This was a piece I wrote for the Royal Forest of Dean Orchestra when I was their conductor. It is a short lighthearted piece for small orchestra.
This is a suite of solo piano pieces which were originally sketches for a short film, we ended up going in a slightly different direction for the film but I liked how these turned out.
