His many chamber works include a Piano Quintet Op 27 (1995)—described by Roderic Dunnett in the Independent as ‘…lending a new late 20th century dimension to the English pastoral…’ and a String Quartet Op 32 (1998), as well as smaller pieces for solo instruments and piano. He has also written works for choir—Awake, awake, the world is young Op 34—,organ—Rhapsody Op 25 (1996), brass and solo piano. He is an acknowledged expert on the 19th century poet and literary critic John Addington Symonds, and apart from setting five of his poems for voice and piano he has contributed a significant essay to the book John Addington Symonds—Culture and the Demon Desire (Macmillan Press Ltd, 2000). He is President of The Arthur Bliss Society as well as being the current chairman of the Ivor Gurney Society. His continuing work on the music of Gurney has led to orchestrations of two of his songs (2003)—counterparts to the two that were orchestrated by Herbert Howells—and newly edited versions of Gurney’s War Elegy and Gloucestershire Rhapsody, with Philip Lancaster.
