"From the moment we opened the copies, I knew that the choir were enjoying his new setting of Refugee.  It was not until the final week of rehearsals that we able to put the two choirs and organ together, and in the first rehearsal all of the boys were overwhelmed by the power of this work.  The congregation loved it.  It really is a carol for this moment in time.   The message is simple and clear, and the musical language accessible, direct and challenging in equal measure for both a choir and congregation.   It deserves to be performed all over the world."

David Woodcock, Director of Music at Harrow School


Whether you require music for concert performance, for a theatre production or for film and video media, I am always happy to discuss taking on commissions. My approach to composition is that it should be as collaborative as possible; although the writing itself is often necessarily a solitary task, I work closely with the person or group I am writing for, right up the point where it used, to ensure that it fits their needs and works in the best way it can. Over the years I have successfully collaborated with a wide variety of people and by working with them have ensured that the experience of commissioning new music is an enjoyable and fulfilling one.

Commissioning fees are available on request, though there is no one-size-fits-all scale for this kind of thing. In order to give you a rough estimate, it is helpful if you can be as specific as possible about your needs, particularly with details such as:

  • who will be performing it? (i.e. the instrumental or vocal scale, and what level of difficulty the performers may expect)

  • will you be needing recorded tracks (e.g. for a film score) or just sheet music?

  • what length of the music do you require?

  • is there a specific budget for this work?

  • how soon do you need it?
