Vocal Arrangements and Compositions

I have arranged several jazz standards and written a couple of pieces for a capella voices - mainly chamber sextet. Two pieces have been premiered by members of Chantage. Some of the scores are downloadable here; I'm very happy for anyone to use these arrangements - as long as you tell me! (email me)

Onetet (2014)
