After almost three years in the making, my live orchestral album “Revealing Beauty” is finally complete. The album features themes from some of the major BBC series I’ve had the privilege of scoring in recent years.
Recorded with the Budapest and Macedonian Concert Orchestras, and orchestrated by the amazing Michael Doherty (with a contribution from legendary orchestrator Nicholas Dodd), the music finally sounds as I always imagined.
Guest appearances by the inimitable legend Tom Boyd (Schindler’s List, Titanic, Forrest Gump etc) on oboe and English horn, the incredible Karen Jones (Harry Potter, Sweeney Todd etc) on flute, and a brief appearance by the brilliant Sandro Friedrich on Duduk.
Guest vocals by the beautiful and talented ladies Julie Elven and Ashton Zyer. Thank you ladies for your impassioned contributions! I also have to thank BBC director/editor Andrea Carnevali. Without his guidance and support, most of this music would not exist!

The album features music from:Revealing Beauty Album Cover
The Queen’s Palaces
Francesco’s Mediterranean Voyage
Seven Ages of Britain
Shakespeare in Italy
The Manor Reborn
Empire

…and a bonus track from Britain’s Great War.

The music encompasses a range of styles and moods – passion, romance, adventure, loneliness, danger and many more. I hope to take you on a musical journey through these BBC programmes. Please click on the “Buy Music” tab at the top where you can hear clips and purchase the album or individual tracks. You can also see/hear a 15 minute montage of most of the album here.

Thank you for listening.
