Despite the effects of the pandemic Musician and Composer finds a new connection with God.

First published 15th May 2020

Roger studied music at Bath Spa University then worked for Peter Gabriel's music technology company 'Syco' in London. It was there that he met Hans Zimmer and became a 'ghost writer' on Zimmer's first Hollywood film soundtrack. This started Roger's career as a television and film composer which has included the theme for the BBC's '999' series, 'The Story of Painting' with Sister Wendy Beckett, and, 'The Lost Gods of Easter Island' with Sir David Attenborough.

Roger is deeply grateful for opportunities that presented during a diverse career, and, in his own words ‘it has been an honour and privilege to work with some of the most amazing people on the planet’. Roger returned to his country of birth, and, spent five years in the war zone in Northern Uganda.

He was deeply impacted by his experiences in Africa, and, also from the two years he worked as a Police Special Constable. This season has brought to all of us uncertainty. Yet, Roger has carved out time to re-examine his faith and encouraged by his church Thomas a Becket in Box, has re- imagined our weekly Collects by producing ‘The Collect Project Series’ a music and spoken word resource.

You will find the videos for Easter 5 and 6 and Ascension below. These short pieces, with visual images, can also be used in a variety of contexts; Easter 5 is particularly relevant to our shared life today. For such a time as this, Roger has successfully built on the contribution of our rich liturgy.
