Commissions

Commissioning Guy

Guy is always happy to be approached with ideas for new commissions. Email him on guyscottturner@nullgmail.com. A rough guide to cost is £100 per minute of music for a choral piece with or without piano/organ. Orchestrated pieces, or pieces requiring Guy to write lyrics too, will be more than this – by negotiation.

Guy’s main project currently is a choral work based on the legends of Robin Hood, for the Nottingham Bach Choir.
