Music from the Heart of England and beyond...

We offer you a very warm welcome to the comprehensive website of the Central Composers Alliance. We are proud of this site and the work it does to promote the music of our members. We are sure that you´ll discover something to stimulate your musical appetite and, whether a fellow composer, performer or an avid web-surfer, we hope you will find many interesting pieces and lots of information as to what makes us tick as composers.

The CCA is an ever-evolving organisation so be sure to check back regularly to see how we are doing. It is certainly worth following up our projects below especially our joint project written to commemorate the birth of HRH Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge: FIT FOR A KING. We haven´t done a comparable piece for HRH Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge but that doesn´t make this project any less effective as a set of variations. The world premiere videos of the individual variations are available under each of the contributing composers pages but, in the meantime, do have a listen to the complete studio recording:

Below, there is an opportunity to delve into the remarkable career and works of our CCA Patron, the renowned composer Judith Bingham. As part of her wonderful compostional output, her stunning work ["Ghostly Grace"] for the reinterment on King Richard III was performed in Leicester Cathedral on 26th March 2015 to a world-wide audience of 633 million viewers.
