Those of you who know me will also know that my musical career has led me in various directions. They include performing, music journalism, teaching, examining, writing music for exam boards and tuition books – and one that I’ve never really talked about before. That is: writing music for Christian worship. I’ve been thrilled in the past to hear my liturgical anthems sung by church choirs. Recently, I’ve been writing songs in a more modern idiom for solo and congregational singing.
To adapt a biblical phrase, I’ve decided not to hide this side of my work under a bushel any more. You’ll find I’m adding my worship songs to the Music for Good YouTube page. I follow each one with a short commentary on the biblical inspiration for the lyrics. In time, I’ll be putting the scores of these songs on this site for free download. If you or your congregation would like to sing or play any of them, that will be wonderful.
