Available Notes

This is an overview of some recent repertoire for which I’ve written programme notes. The list is always growing, sometimes faster than I can update it, so please feel free to enquire about available notes, repertoire, and new commissions. Recent projects include booklet notes for a CD by the Choirs of St Mary’s Collegiate Church, Warwick (20th- and 21st-century anthems), and Steven Isserlis’s annual recitals at the Jacqueline du Pre Concert Building, Oxford.
