His work has been embraced by many choral organisations and festivals worldwide including the Association of British Choral Directors, the American Choral Directors Association, Europa Cantat, Festival 500 in Newfoundland and the Song Festival in Tallinn, Estonia. In 2009 he will return for the second consecutive year to conduct his work at the 'Golden Week' choral workshop of the Japan Choral Association. Two large-scale new works will be premiered over the next two years. In 2009 his Salisbury Vespers will be performed at the opening concert of the Salisbury Festival by more than 600 locally based choral singers and players. In 2010 his Requiem will be premiered in Oxford by The Oxford Bach Choir and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and subsequently by the co-commissioners, The Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church Choir in Dallas, Texas.

From 1997 to 2003 he was conductor of the Royal College of Music Chorus in London. Since 2002 he has been Principal Guest Conductor of the BBC Singers.
