"After more than sixty years of composing, I find myself greeting works back through the years even to student days - old friends half-forgotten. It's been a long story. My music has been described as 'heart-felt, clear, rugged and peculiar'. I'm happy to accept that judgement - even the 'peculiar', for the music, is eclectic and particular, responding to commissions for many different instruments and ensembles in a variety of styles. In that sense, it is certainly peculiar, each piece telling its own story." John Purser, Composer.
