Andrew Cusworth is a British composer with a particular passion for choral and vocal music. His choral music in particular is increasingly gaining attention for its atmospheric quality and approachability.
He is based in Aberystwyth, Wales, where he is pursuing research on Welsh traditional music through digital methods in an AHRC-funded partnership between the Open University and Llyfrgell Genedlaethol Cymru | National Library of Wales.
This site is intended to provide information about Andrew and his music, including a biography, a worklist with audio extracts, news and events and a contact page, all accessible by the navigation links shown to the left.
More detailed information about his research project can be found at his blog.
Newly formed chamber choir Concanenda have recently recorded three of Andrew's pieces for release on an album later this year. There is no rose and Drop down, ye heavens will appear along with Composed upon Westminster Bridge, which was composed especially for the project. Other composers heard on the album will include Gabriel Jackson, Paul Mealor, Jonathan Dove, and Alexander Campkin.
The recording sessions took place from the 9th to the 11th of February in Sidney Sussex College Chapel in Cambridge, where the choir was conducted by its founder and director, Alexandra Schwinn, and the session was managed and directed by Adrian Peacock.
No forthcoming events to display at the moment.
