The creative spirit is always alive in the human heart. It constantly seeks to renew itself by finding different and original ways to express the fundamental things which paradoxically appear to remain the same. This research seeks to connect with those fundamentals: the mystery of the past and our sense of belonging to a history, collaboration with others, the excitement, energy and inspiration brought about by experiencing new things, new music. A significant body of compositions has been produced for a range of performing groups comprising: 1. O Frondens Virga for SATB choir 2. Compline a fantasia for orchestra 3. Summer Suite for oboe and bass Clarinet 4. Children of the Monsoon for mixed instrumental ensemble and soprano 5. Tall Ships Suite for traditional group and string quartet 6. One of the houses James Joyce lived in. Once for soprano, alto, tenor, baritone, bass and clarinet in Bflat 7. Bust a short opera in two acts 8. 3 Songs for Baritone and Piano1 It is hoped that this work will not only be of the highest standard but will demonstrate the acquisition of a compositional style that is uniquely personal and that it will make a significant and original contribution to the advancement of new music. 1 Volume 1 contains detailed commentary on all works in chronological order. Volume 2 contains seven of the eight scores, number 7, Bust, exists as a separate volume (Volume 3).
