Pieces scheduled for publication

Posted by Martin Cordner on Thursday, May 31, 2012, In : publication 

It's always brilliant to hear news of a piece that's going to be published. Recently I've been notified that Learn, Love & Live and Over Vale and Hill will be published in due course - great news.

This means that the following pieces are scheduled for publication in the UK journals but are therefore not available to bands from me:

Overture - Celebrate & Sing (Judd Street Collection, Sept 2012)
Written as the opener for the 2010 UK Gospel Arts concert and premiered by the ISB. Features the tunes ...

This project includes myself being part of a children's summer music camp and providing musical instruments and various bits of equipment for the SA in that country. You can get all the details on my justgiving page here.

My brother-in-law David ran with me (really appreciated t...

And third, have our lives and worldviews changed beyond belief. 

Apart from being impressed by the montage image above (yes - it's my tee shirt and race number su...

Posted by Martin Cordner on Friday, May 4, 2012, In : articles 

In the past weeks I've had so may folks - online and in person - asking about the 'ten emerging composers' article I first mentioned here. I'm overwhelmed (if not a little overawed) by the level of expectation - many thanks to you all for your interest.

In an attempt to pacify your expectations a little, I'm today announcing that the article will be published before 31 May 2012. Keep watching online. 

ost of you know that I have now settled on the ten, what's taking so long (apart from the fa...
