Up until December 2017 all my music was downloadable for free. Unfortunately Score Exchange have imposed a uniform $1.50 charge - all proceeds I receive will go to Alzheimer Scotland.

I have been organist and choirmaster at St Michael's Parish Church, Linlithgow, Scotland since 1989. Previously I was organist at Haggs Parish Church from 1974 to 1980 and then assistant organist in St Michael's. I studied Mathematics and Music at Glasgow University between 1976 and 1980.

In St Michael's we have a wonderful reconditioned Willis organ and a fantastic choir, as well as one of the most lively congregations and ministries in Scotland - led by Ian Paterson until he retired in 2003 and now by Canadian Stewart Gillan - and that is where a lot of my music is produced for.

The music includes organ pieces - such as Chorale Preludes for accompanying our Sunday Club youngsters moving around in the Church or other voluntaries which I have produced for our services in Holy Week based on Plainchant - and choir anthems to be used between readings from the Bible.

Recently we have embarked on a very active ministry directed towards children and their carers/parents/grandchildren and this has resulted in the Seedlings Song and The Promise, which were written with our Associate Minister Cheryl McKellar-Young(and Anne Sutherland, my much better half, in the case of the Seedlings Song).

Additionally I have been involved in historical and dramatic productions and these have required music which I have arranged or composed. Thank you to the congregation, musicians and singers in St Michael's - and I hope you find something of use in my music.
