*"Bravo. Such beautiful, sensitive writing..."*
Eric Whitacre [regarding Love and O Virgo Splendens*]
Gareth composes chiefly sacred choral works, which have been performed and recorded globally. A Song Was Heard at Christmas and Blessed be that Maid Marie were recorded by the BBC Singers and subsequently broadcast on BBC Radio 3. These works, alongside several others, have since been published by Boosey and Hawkes.
The Three Choirs Festival 2019 saw the world premiere of his choral and orchestral setting of Ivor Gurney's text, "The Songs I Had". Temple Church Choir's commission in the same year, "Come, Let Us Return to the Lord", was subsequently performed as part of their Ash Wednesday Choral Evensong broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 in 2020. Gareth's "Notre Père" setting written especially for St Margaret's Westminster Abbey Choir received its premiere the following week. Upcoming commissions include "Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring" for Sonoro's Choral Inspirations 2 project in 2021 and "Righteousness and Equity" written for Temple Church Choir.
