An excellent concert last night at St Mary's Church, Old Swinford in Stourbridge, As well as Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle in the piano and harmonium version the choir performed my Missa Brevis. I was pleased with the reception and many thanks to Richard Hall for providing a supporting accompaniment for the choir.

Before the pandemic I discussed with local composer Paul Henley the possibility of setting up a Shropshire-based Composers' Cooperative which would allow us to help each other promote, perform and disseminate our music more widely. two documents that explore a possible vision of a way forward can be found  HERE.

If you feel such a group may be of benefit, please do get in touch if you write music of what could broadly be described as classical or serious in nature . Now the pandemic is lifting  to some extent (hopefully!), we may be able to make some progress this year.

I am delighted that the Wolverhampton Symphony Orchestra are playing  my 'Song of the Shropshire Hills' on 19th March 2022 at Wolverhampton Grammar School. This Orchestral tone poem was originally written for Richard White and the Ludlow Orchestra and premiered in St. Laurence's Church in 2005. If you enjoy classical music, it would be lovely to see you there. The remainder of the programme is an enticing mix of tuneful and charming English music, some of which you will recognise from radio, film and television!
