Commissioning a new piece of music can be a thrilling and rewarding opportunity for any ensemble—and can be more affordable than you think.


Whether you are looking to honour a person, place or event, a bespoke piece of music can be the perfect addition to any concert. I am always eager to discuss ideas and potential opportunities to collaborate.

Some major past commissions have included:

  • Voices of Vimy, premiered by the BBC Singers in 2017. A 30-minute choral work co-written with Scottish composer Tom Harrold, and commissioned by Pro Coro Canada and the John Armitage Memorial Trust, to commemorate 100 years since the Battle of Vimy Ridge.

  • I am like many, premiered by The Fourth Choir in 2018. Commissioned by Senate House Library in London, UK as part of their exhibition “Queer Between the Covers”, commemorating 50 years since the legalization of homosexuality in Britain.

  • Resurrectio, premiered by the National Youth Choir of Canada in 2016. Commissioned by conductor Michael Zaugg as part of a thematic program entitled “…a riveder le stelle”.
