Delighted to announce that several of my works will now be published by NoteNova Publishing! Based in Pennsylvania, they offer a wide range of beautiful choral music, and I’m very proud to be alongside my fellow composers there. The first pieces they’re adding to their catalogue are God To Enfold Me (now available for SSA, SABar, ATB or TBarB choirs) and Good King Wenceslas – more to follow!
Composing is going to be on hold for a while as my wife and I have just had our second child! (Zoe, a sister to our 2-year-old daughter Robin).
But if you’d like to order music, or discuss a commission for 2016 (or late 2015), now would be a very good time to do so as we try to support our growing family.
New recording – listen to the new “Nunc Dimittis” for ATBarB (also available for TTBB or SATB).
And thanks to St Andrew’s Leytonstone (London) who are performing the unison version of “Crux Fidelis” over Easter!
Latest pieces – order now and get a world premiere:
Drop, Drop, Slow Tears – for SSA trio
St Paul Responses – for SATB choir and cantor. Responses for Anglican evensong or similar services.
A Mother’s Blessing – for SATB choir, easy. A beautiful piece for a baptism or christening, no divisi and simple to learn.
The above are £1-£1.50 per copy, or £20-£25 for a PDF to print infinite copies.
Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis (in Latin) for SSABar, SATB, ATBarB, or TTBB choir
See the Magnificat for SATB here (soprano and tenor soloists required, fairly tricky)
and the Nunc Dimittis for SATB here (some divisi for sopranos, moderate difficulty).
Price is £40 for a PDF of the set (or £3 per single copy).
Upcoming performances – O Vos Omnes and Crux Fidelis will be performed by the Magnificat Choir of St John Cantius, Chicago – O Vos Omnes for the 12.30pm Mass on 22nd March, and Crux Fidelis in the Good Friday service.
Recordings are now up for my set of three songs from Carmina Gadelica (for 3-part choir, SABar or ATB).
Another piece from the set, “God To Enfold Me” will be performed by a choir in Virginia during their tour of the northeastern US.
A new recording – “Take Me Or Leave Me” for solo jazz vocalist and piano. Something a bit different to start the year! See the score here (available for alto or tenor, other transpositions on request).
The Mackintosh Choir in Glasgow gave the premiere of my 3-part arrangement of “Good King Wenceslas” and also performed my setting of “In The Bleak Midwinter” on 7th December at 7pm in the Mackintosh Church, Glasgow – hear them doing “Good King Wenceslas”!
“God to Enfold Me” has been performed 3 times now by the National Youth Choir of Scotland’s Training Choir – most notably at the Edinburgh Culture Summit. It’s now published by NoteNova – order a copy for your choir here – available for SSA, SABar, ATB or TBarB.
O Praise The Lord Ye Angels Of His is now available on St Giles Cathedral Choir’s new CD “O Clap Your Hands” – order from McAlister Matheson Music in Edinburgh (UK orders here, international orders here).
