John’s material is currently being organised – this page will be gradually updated. Please come back again!

John produced many compositions and arrangements. This is a list of works that have been published. In some cases, the link to the publisher will take you straight to that work on their website.

Some may now be out of print – if there is an item you cannot obtain, do please contact me as I may be able to source it.
