My music is mainly choral, with some notable solo exceptions. It is generally not too difficult to perform (though some pieces are a little challenging) and aims to be accessible to the listener. My guiding principle is to write (or arrange) a good melody and let it be heard through the harmony. An early influence on my style has been Gregorian chant: more recent ones renaissance and mediaeval choral music.

My only opera is "Romeo and Juliet", using only text from Shakespeare's play and intended for untrained voices and chamber orchestra - uploaded here in May 2015.

If you'd like to look at/listen to some other stuff, such as my mediaeval style "Requiem", it's on my website, www.ptsheetmusic.com. There are free pdf's available there (including instrumental parts) of every item on the website, including all those on Score Exchange.

Please inform me by e-mail if you intend to perform any of the pieces, at philipthick@doctors.org.uk
