Peter Owens

CountryUnited Kingdom
OccupationArranger, Composer, Conductor
CategoriesOther, Sacred

Over many years’ experience as a conductor of school and amateur choral groups, Peter has regularly composed and arranged music for choir – both with instrumental accompaniment and a cappella – in response to opportunities and requests for concerts and church services.
The music has proved popular with singers, audiences and congregations in England and abroad and evokes Peter’s own eclectic tastes: as well as Renaissance, light and folk music, he especially enjoys conducting sacred Russian repertoire; he has published articles on the music of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies and led the group Intimate Voices in performances of Stockhausen’s Stimmung.

Though a graduate in music from London University, Peter is self-taught as a composer; his work has received encouragement from Alan Bullard, Andrew Carter and John Rutter at recent gatherings of the Association of British Choral Directors.
