David Fawcett is a classical composer and professional musician living and working in Swanage, in Dorset’s beautiful Isle of Purbeck.
He writes sacred and secular choral music for a range of types of choir, from small church choirs of limited resources, through to experienced chamber choirs and large choral societies. Most of his existing output is sacred choral music, with secular works being added to the catalogue.
David has been commissioned to produce works specifically for several choirs. He has found success in competitions, including the St Edmundsbury Cathedral / RA Vestey Memorial Trust Competition of 2018 (with Before Action, a Remembrance anthem), The Wessex Festival in 2016, and The Cantus Ensemble Composition Competition in 2015.
His works have been performed across the UK, including in St Paul’s Cathedral, London, Wells, Norwich, Worcester, Ripon, St Edmundsbury, St Albans, Portsmouth and Sheffield Cathedrals, Southwell Minster, St Philip’s Cathedral, Birmingham, St Barnabas Cathedral, Nottingham, and St Anne’s Cathedral, Leeds, and overseas, including in St Paul’s Cathedral, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin and the Episcopal Church of St Francis, San Francisco, USA, St Paul’s Cathedral, London, Ontario, Canada, and in Norway and the Netherlands.
