“…engaging…with harmonies reminiscent of Peter Warlock…”, Mike Wheeler, Classical Music Daily, 30 December 2019.

“…an attractive, lively and lilting piece which the choir performed with enthusiasm.”, Susan Johnson, Keswick Choral Society concert review, December 2019.
I compose choral, chamber and orchestral music in the “New Baroque” style. I am most inspired by the music of the 17th and 18th centuries, but bring into play ideas taken from many other times and places, from medieval organum to Okinawan dances! My music weaves these contrasted elements together to create novel sounds and textures.
My core values are craftsmanship, beautiful form, emotional sincerity and imagination.
