I have had the great pleasure of working with Liberty Spears, a Mezzo-Soprano from Jersey, in creating two new works. First of which is a small piece, "Quatrain", for singer and trumpet, based after Verlaine. The second piece is a three movement song cycle based off of three poems from the great Elizabeth Barrett Browning, for voice and string quartet.
The performance will be at 1pm in the Old Royal Naval College Chapel on the 3rd June.

Leeds Lieder - a new Song
I am one of the composers involved in the Leeds Lieder festival of 2019, and on 27th April, I and the poet Clint Wastling will be presenting to the world the fruits of our labours with our new art song, currently being composed. This concert promises to be a feast of variety, with many different approaches to composition melding with contrasting poetic voices.
