 Buy Carpe Diem

Buy Chairman's Boogie

Buy: LMR 600 Gordon

Winner of the Kendal Concert Band Composition Competition 2021.

Full description on Larch Music site.

A great piece for  concert hall or bandstand (alternate starting point).


Time is precious and this exciting piece, with its "ticking" motif, inspired by Stravinsky's The Augurs of Spring Dances of the Young Girls,  from the Rite of Spring, keeps a sense of urgency and pressure through the piece

When the chairman of my band said he likes a "Boogie", a challenge was set. In this up-beat, jazzy piece the lower brass imitate the stereo typical piano left-hand pattern. Lots of section features, including the Timps (The chairman plays timps). Come and join the party

One for the train buffs! LMR 600 Gordon, an engine form the Longmoor Military Railway now preserved on the  Severn Valley Railway. Full description on Larch Music site.

Virtual performance of Standard Version


Live performance of Standard Version : Yeovil Concert Band


Composed: 2021. 

A descriptive and relaxed composition. Ideal before a church service or to slow the pace in a full concert. Unashamedly Baroque influenced.

Composed: 2021. 

Introducing the Band an exciting way to showcase the different areas of the band. The showstopper / musical theatre style is an ideal opener to the 2nd part of a concert. If practical, each section should stand to play their allocated section as follows: Percussion (a free section to develop as they wish), All Bass instruments with Euphonium if needed, Trombones, French Horns and Euphoniums (+Baritones), High w/w: Flutes, Oboe, and Clarinets, Trumpets/Cornets/Flugel. Vamp Bars: These bars enable the conductor to introduce the section and repeat continuously as needed. For a live performance click here

Composed: 2021.

Steadfast, a concert piece with hints of a march. An uplifting main theme leads to more unusual inner sections containing lovely reed

textures. A menacing character builds in the middle until we return to the positivity of the opening idea. Something exciting for both performer and audience alike.


  Buy:  Spy Ring

 Buy Behind The Mask

Buy: Castle Ruins

2021. Spy Ring is a light-hearted glimpse into the undercover world. Originally written to add some fun for the band, the text could form part of the performance by being projected or held up by band members. Text is kept short to enable such performance possibilities.

Also audible on the timpani part is the victory sign (dot dot dot dash) used on the radio in WWII.
