I did a presentation on Howard goodall. He is a choral composer for musical theatre pieces, television shows, and choral themes. He had also done a choral and musical piece together. He is a british composer and was born at Bromley a city in the United Kingdom. His earliest musical theatre piece was in 1984 with the name of The Hired Man. He loved both popular and classic music, doesn’t matter if it was “high or low” end music. He believed that you need to be fully willing to bare the worst in everyone. He entailed that people won’t always favor your work or necessarily like it. He included in an article that his friend, a former musical composer had been beaten up by security police in Apartheid South Africa. He called this as “suffering” and said this was an extremely worst case scenario. Don’t be snooty or snobby when around interviewers and being willing to take extreme opportunities was his advice. Patience was one of his big things when being in the music industry. Many musical composers, singers, djs, percussionists are british and come to the americas to show their work. With him being british, he definitely decides to show his pride and honor for the british and loves the beatles for not only their music, but for their ethnicity. Howard goodall does many different “job” type titles, one of them does include choral music composer, but there are others including; actor, screenwriter, presenter, and film score composer.  Goodall has a body of choral music to his name (the process of composing one of these works is noted in the book of his Big Bangs series), including “In Memoriam Anne Frank” (2001), “O Lord God of Time and Eternity” (2003) and settings of Psalm 23 (better known as the theme tune to The Vicar of Dibley) and “Love Divine”. In September 2008, his Eternal Light: A Requiem was premiered by Rambert Dance Company to choreography by the company’s artistic director, Mark Baldwin. The result of a commission from London Musici (Artistic Director: Mark Stephenson) to celebrate its 20th anniversary, Eternal Light: A Requiem was commissioned as both a choral-orchestral-dance piece and a choral orchestral work. The London premiere took place on 11 November 2008 at Sadler’s Wells with Rambert Dance Company, London Musici, The Choir of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, Finchley Children’s Music Group and soloists, conducted by Paul Hoskins. Also in September 2008, EMI Classics released the premiere recording of Eternal Light: A Requiem, with soloists Natasha Marsh, Alfie Boe and Christopher Maltman joining London Musici, The Choir of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, and conducted by Stephen Darlington. Eternal Light: A Requiem has now had over 400 live performances across the world.In March 2009, Classic FM released Howard Goodall’s Enchanted Voices, a modern exploration of ancient chant, scored for upper voices, cello, organ, handbells and synthesiser. The disc marks Goodall’s position as Classic FM’s Composer-in-Residence for 2009. A month after its UK release, it became the best-selling specialist choral CD of 2009. It subsequently earned a nomination for Classical Brit Album of the Year. Howard Goodall’s Enchanted Voices was followed by Howard Goodall’s Enchanted Carols (November 2009) and Pelican in the Wilderness (March 2010).
