for SATB and organ or piano This simple and attractive carol sets a little-known text by the Rev. Canon John Gray (1866-1934). With an accompaniment for either organ and piano and optional soprano solos, this piece is accessible to a wide range of choirs and would be an excellent addition to either a Christmas concert or service.
for unison voices, with optional second part, and piano This is the key is a dramatic, narrative piece, perfect for children's and youth choirs. It can be sung in unison throughout, or the score contains options for two parts, sometimes singing alternating phrases and at other times singing together in two-part harmony. Sections in different tempos and keys create a variety of moods, and the continuous piano part features running quavers, a rhythmic bass line, and shimmering spread chords.
for SATB unaccompanied Images of Peace resulted from a request for a work that would encourage peace and understanding while not focussing on any particular creed or belief, and Alan Bullard approached this concept by choosing texts from a range of sources, including the English metaphysical and pastoral traditions, and the Taoist, Jewish, and Christian traditions. The set of five songs are designed as a symphonic whole, with the first and last ('Sweet Peace' and 'Bread of Peace') partly sharing the same material, book-ending three contrasting movements, a lively scherzo ('Rainbow of Peace'), an expressive slow movement ('Peace in the world'), and an elegant allegretto ('Doves of Peace').
for unison voices, with optional descant, and piano This attractive piece for unison voices celebrates the wonder of the 'bright new moon'. The composer's own text, based on traditional Hebridean poems, is set to a simple, flowing melody, and the optional descant in the final section soars over the melody and introduces an echo effect. The piano accompaniment supports the vocal lines while providing additional colours and textures.
for SATB and piano This original suite sets anonymous instructions found in packaging to general household goods, providing amusing and theatrical highlights as well as musical interplay and formal episodes. The three contrasting movements are contemporary yet accessible in style, with catchy melodies and jazz-inspired harmonies.
for SATB and organ or piano Opening out from a lyrical exchange between unison lower and upper voices, As the bridegroom to his chosen is based around a John Tauler poem rich in metaphorical language that reflects on the protagonist's relationship with the Lord. Contrasting textures and eminently singable melodies make this a musically rewarding yet accessible anthem.
for CCBar and piano This original suite, written for the Warwickshire Youth Choir, represents an extended concert item at the centre of the Emerging Voices series. It sets anonymous instructions found in packaging to general household goods, providing amusing and theatrical highlights as well as musical interplay and formal episodes.
for CBar and piano This original composition combines several traditional proverbs (Good things come to those who wait, What goes up..., Where there's a will...), a quirky melody, a laid-back swing feel, a whispering section, and an immediate melodic 'hook'. Sufficient unison writing supports effective learning, for this age group, and challenging duplet rhythms are made accessible within helpful longer phrases. The music is well-suited to the text and displays Bullard's accessible but highly accomplished compositional technique.
for SATB and organ or piano Horatius Bonar's well-known hymn Beloved, let us love is a perfect text for wedding services, expressing the belief that it is only through loving others that we can know God's love for us. Bullard's celebratory and emotive setting begins by offsetting male and female voices, before exploring full-choir textures, rich harmonies, and contrasting keyboard accompaniments. Both affirmatory and exultant and reflective and wondrous, the anthem should find a place in church services and concerts throughout the year.
for SATB unaccompanied Alan Bullard's simple, uplifting setting of words by eighteenth-century writer and Calvinist minister Joseph Hart is perfectly suited to the Every Voice Rejoice series. The anthem is characterized by flexible rhythms that sensitively complement the metre of the text and a beautifully reflective set of Amens at its close.
for SSA and piano This original suite sets anonymous instructions found in packaging to general household goods, providing amusing and theatrical highlights as well as musical interplay and formal episodes. The three contrasting movements are contemporary yet accessible in style, with catchy melodies and jazz-inspired harmonies.
for SAT and piano or organ Originally published in the collection Alan Bullard Anthems, this optimistic setting of Jan Struther's famous text is perfectly suited to performance at a variety of occasions, including at weddings, funerals, and services throughout the year. Bullard's original melody is expressive and graceful, paying homage to the message of the words, and the supportive and melodious accompaniment may be performed on piano or organ.
for SATB and organ with optional congregation Perfect for celebrating Pentecost, this joyous anthem on the theme of the Holy Spirit centres around the Veni Creator Spiritus plainchant, fragments of which have been skilfully developed to create an expressive setting of Edwin Hatch's Breathe on me, breath of God. Masterfully crafted, the anthem moves seamlessly between the familiar plainchant and Bullard's original melody, before culminating in a climactic final verse in which the two melodies are sung simultaneously, bringing the anthem to an exultant close.

for SATB and piano or organ Psalmi Penitentiales comprises three settings of sections from the Penitential Psalms, interspersed with four arrangements of the well-known Ubi caritas plainchant. Often recited during Lent, the three psalms that Bullard has chosen give expression to feelings of penitence and remorse. The setting, for mixed four-part choir with organ or piano accompaniment, responds to the drama and changes of mood within the Latin text with expressive melodic lines and richly varied harmonies. The psalms may also be performed separately, giving the work added flexibility in performance. Psalmi Penitentiales is an excellent companion to Bullard's Wondrous Cross, ideal for choirs seeking a substantial choral work for Lent and Passiontide.
for SATB (with divisions) and optional organ or piano Setting a popular text paraphrased from the Song of Solomon, Rise up, my love is an uplifting anthem ideal for Easter services, although the text's beautiful springtime imagery would also make a lovely feature in any concert programme. The work contains expressive word painting, with moments of intensity alongside phrases of utter stillness. There are opportunities for soloists, and the flexible scoring allows choirs to decide whether to perform the piece unaccompanied, with organ, or with piano. This anthem will be included on a forthcoming CD by Selwyn College, Cambridge (Regent Records).
