Andrew has always maintained a strong interest in composition, which include pieces for baroque instruments: concertos for baroque flute, concerto grosso for fl/vln/bassoon and strings, a harpsichord concerto, chamber music for fl/vln/viola da gamba/hpschd; for 3 recorders/cello/hpschd; many pieces for viola da gamba.

 

2014 saw the first performance of his large-scale oratorio 'Karuna' on the need for compassion, with texts drawn from many cultures and periods,. Two years later Andrew completed a new version of Bach's St Mark Passion. He is at present writing his second String Quartet.
