December 2012
We've just taken delivery of the new Christmas Meditations CD - ideal for some reflective time for yourself or your congregation or house group during Advent, or even for the odd Christmas present! After the positive reception I had for the original Meditations CD of piano improvisations on hymn tunes, a friend suggested that something similar with a particular focus on Advent and Christmas might be helpful, so this is the the outcome. Take a look at the Catalogue page for more information and to order your copy.

Looking back on 2012, I've been very blessed - as well as challenged - in many ways. After the difficult decision a year ago to step back from my role as Director of Music in one school and concentrate solely on my freelance work, I have actually been able to work in a much wider variety of schools and other situations. One particular highlight was the Jubilee Project in partnership with North Kesteven School and the EMI Sound Foundation. For this venture I was composer in residence with pupils and staff from a group of local primary schools, developing confidence and skills in composing and songwriting, leading to a massed performance of the pupils' work. An inspiring project in every respect! More recently, I had the great pleasure of leading training once again with local preachers and worship leaders over at Wesley Memorial Church in Epworth, and chance to share fellowship and experiences with friends old and new.

The Autumn has been a little quieter, and given me chance to develop not only the Christmas Meditations disc, but also to begin gathering material for a new CD of songs planned for 2013. I already have some concerts scheduled for the Spring - if you would like to host a concert in your church (or other suitable venue!) take a look at the Concerts page for general information, or do get in touch via the Contact page to have a more specific chat.

Thank you all for your support and encouragement through 2012; every blessing for Christmas and the New Year.
