Brian Hughes

Brian Hughes was born in Rhosllannerchrugog, Wrexham in 1938. His vocal and choral music is very dramatic and is particularly accessible to the listener. He receives frequent commissions from various choirs and groups of musicians throughout Wales and England. His experience of choral training during his period as conductor of the Alun School Singers, Mold, and as the chorus master of the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester, has given him a particular expertise in choral writing. Nevertheless, he does have works for large orchestra to his name – Strata and Janus as well as chamber music such as Quando for clarinet and Pieces for Miriam for flute. Brian is always ready to use a variety of vocal effects in his choral compositions if they add to the overall effect he is attempting to create.
