About the composer
Paul Ayres studied music at Oxford University, and now works freelance as a composer & arranger, choral conductor & musical director, and organist & accompanist. His compositions usually involve words, and he is particularly interested in working with pre-existing music, from arrangements of folksongs, hymns, jazz standards and nursery rhymes to ‘re-compositions’ of classical works, as in Purcell’s Funeral Sentence, 4A Wreck and Messyah. Paul works with many choirs as conductor and/or accompanist, leads education workshops for children, plays piano for improvised comedy shows and musical theatre, and gives organ recitals.
