A small a capella piece as part of a community chorus concert. [more inside]
Sam Gamgee's song in the tower of Cirith Ungol. Words by JRR Tolkien, melody by Stephen Oliver. [more inside]
A song I did for a competition two weeks ago. [more inside]
A four-part a cappella take on an old English nursery rhyme. The melody is traditional; the harmonic lines were written by my friend Laura, who also sings each line. This is our first attempt at this (her first performing, my first recording/producing) and I'm still trying to think of ways to make it better.
More three part me... Took the arrangement from the Wailin' Jennys [more inside]
Mwahahaha! By request...
A song I wrote a couple of years ago as a tribute to my great uncle Bernard, who went down in a Halifax III during WWII. Oh hell. Just listen to the song to get the story.
This might be the first song that directly references a question in the green. I recorded this a few years back as a present to my mum. (The talented Mr Matt Evans added the scritchy-scratchiness.) This is the song as I remember my mum singing it to me. The only difference is that my Mum sang it in a lilting Scouse, whereas I tend to intone it pretentiously. BTW: My question in Ask still stands. I'd love it if anyone knew this song - or anything like it. I fully intend, one day, to illustrate the song as a children's book, sell millions and retire to a caribbean island to kill myself slowly with daiquiris. You have been warned.
