About the music
A composer who concentrates primarily on tonal composition - and mostly vocal or choral music, with inherent narrative, storytelling or characterisation heavily influencing the musical output. The geography and surrounding landscape of The Gower Peninsula, South Wales also influences his writing. Edward 's output is primarily sacred vocal music- though his catalogue is expanding rapidly.
