Welcome

Welcome to the website of the maverick composer Hugh Shrapnel - 'the quiet voice of English music' in the words of the late Cornelius Cardew.

This website introduces you to the multifarious musical world of this versatile and arresting composer. Hugh Shrapnel's music is in turn lyrical, transcendental, ironic, humorous and down-to-earth - the musical expression of his love of nature and feeling for place and community.
