About Michael – Composer

Composer

Looking for an original piece to engage your audience and enthuse your players? Michael creates novel works for any size of music group or choir… even a Tango for Solo Sax!  

In late-2016 Michael was commissioned to write a choral work for the Abbey900 Concert series, based on the Medieval Cirencester manuscripts. Click here to read more and listen to its premiere on 2 November by the choir Dodecantus.

​In July 2017 his 4-part ‘Agnus Dei’ was premiered by the Nailsworth Ecumenical Choir.  Watch the video below.

“I hope we did your Agnus Dei justice – we certainly loved singing it and I have found myself singing it to myself ever since. Your setting of the well-known words is lyrical and tuneful and a delight to sing.” (Hilary Kemmett, poet)

“I have already listened to ‘They Shall Grow Not Old’ several times and, together with the images, found the experience very moving indeed! It is a wonderful tribute to your Great-uncle and my Grand-father. Sincerely, I shall cherish such an individually dedicated piece of work!” (Peter Reynolds)

“Privileged to hear the world premiere of ‘They Shall Grow Not Old’ – such a moving piece. It deserves to get a much wider audience” (Katie Fforde, author)
