Education

Background

Director of the Embassy Singers, Berlin, and of the choir of St. George's Church, Berlin

Andrew studied German and Russian and has worked as a simultaneous interpreter for the German Government since 1988. The scores uploaded to CPDL mainly fall into the following categories: scores produced for the use of his choirs; a lockdown project to make all the public-domain hymns in the hymnal used in his church available online; some which cannot be posted on CPDL can be found here, a number of descants written for his choirs, and his series of bar-less Renaissance scores designed to liberate the rhythmic counterpoint. An article explaining the reasoning behind the bar-less scores can be found here.
