Order of the Cynthian Palm


My style tends towards a French sound with a German structural approach. I try to keep some sense of harmonic and melodic direction as well as clarity in whatever I write. I think my being eclectic is appropriate to the present time since I feel much of the twentieth century was too narrowly based, with its pointless insistence on atonality and serialism. Perhaps we need to go to the opposite extreme for a while. My own occasional use of atonality and serial techniques is always under the guidance of my ear and may have, as some have suggested, a tonal basis after all. 

My Symphony No 1, based on Tennyson's Idylls of the King, has been placed on YouTube with narration and matching graphics, by Duane Mazey.
