The Lord is my Shepherd is also available in an arrangement for mixed voices.

Commissioned by Vivace Chorus and dedicated to the memory of Keith Hester

The Lord is my Shepherd can also be performed with string orchestra. Full score and orchestral parts can be purchased here.

Best known for his choral works, his 2003 jazz mass setting Mass in Blue has been performed more than eighty times since its premiere by choirs in the UK, Europe and the USA. Other notable works for choir range from large scale oratorios such as Saint Cuthbert (recorded by the Hallé Orchestra in 2002) to the anthem Stay with Me Lord, commissioned for The Sixteen. He has worked on operas and stageworks for OperaGenesis at the Royal Opera House and the National Opera Studio, and his 2009 Jazz Concerto for Clarinet, written for Emma Johnson, has been performed in the UK, USA and Finland.
