Composer

“Jamie W Hall finds fresh things to say in his short, effective piece; after playing it through I quickly decided to programme it for Christmas services at Chichester in 2015″. on Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day from Sing, Oh! My Love.

Charles Harrison, Organist & Master of the Choristers, Chichester Cathedral.

“…and Jamie W Hall’s “As I Lay Upon A Night” which, to my ears, may be the one that makes it into the permanent repertoire.”

Steven Whitehead, Cross Rhythms

“…all clever pieces by important figures in choral music composition such as Francis Pott, Grayston Ives, Richard Lloyd and Jamie W. Hall.”

Gramophone Magazine.

 

Jamie’s various choral works have been performed as far afield as Australia, broadcast on BBC radio and recorded for commercial release. His pieces are published by Novello and Chichester Music Press and have been included in choral anthologies. He has also received a number of commissions writing for professional choirs, children’s choirs and amateur parish choirs, producing works that play to the strengths of these very different groups. Indeed he enjoys working within such boundaries and successfully writes music which combines performability with originality.
