Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in D. This very attractive and expressive unaccompanied setting of the Anglican Evening Canticles is suitable for worship. It is written for undivided SATB choir and would therefore make a wonderful addition to the libraries of large choirs and very small ensembles alike. The stunningly beautiful Nunc Dimittis, in particular, makes a wonderful concert piece. This setting is of moderate difficulty. Duration approximately 9 minutes.
Orbs and Light and Shade is a setting of the first verse of Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem In Memoriam. Although it is suitable for general concert and liturgical use, it is particularly appropriate for services of remembrance and memorial. It is scored for SATB choir and organ, and parts for an orchestral arrangement (strings and chamber organ, with optional trumpet and timpani) are available to hire. Duration approximately 4 minutes.
Paul's music has been performed by the London Sinfonietta, the Manson Ensemble and the Youth Orchestra of the Middle East, and broadcast of BBC Radio 3 and Channel 4.

Lumen is an exquisite setting of a verse of the Latin Nunc Dimittis for unaccompanied SATB choir. Duration approximately 4 minutes.
Christ be with me (SATB) is a setting of well-known verses from St Patrick's Breastplate. Starting with a tranquil solo line, simple plainsong-like melodies develop to create engrossing textures and a powerful climax. Duration approximately 4 minutes.
