A few varied examples of David’s work are included here with notes on the music; these are changed every now and then.  There are also links to the related audio examples from specific pages, and some works (for example THE DRUMMER BOY OF WATERLOO) have their own dedicated page, as does CHRONOMETER – contemporary new-age music with influences from jazz, classical and electro-acoustic music.

David’s concert music spans orchestral, choral and vocal pieces as well as several chamber pieces, including four STRING QUARTETS which have all been recorded.  Most of this music is published by Novello & Co.  CONCERT MUSIC page
