Gordon Lawson (Scotland 1931)
was educated in Glasgow and later in N. Wales.

In 1950, he went up to St. Johns College, Cambridge and gained his MA and B.Mus.

In 1954 he was appointed to Ellesmere College, moving to Malvern in 1962 to become assistant Director of Music and to Brighton in 1966 as Director of Music.

He retired from teaching in 1987 to devote more time to composition and to travel abroad as an examiner for the Royal Schools of Music.

Until 1987 there was little time for composition though his arrangement of 'L'il Liza Jane' first published in 1957 has been much used in competitions and festivals for amateur choirs.

Since 1987, hardly a day passes without putting pen to paper and he has more than 150 compositions to his name, many of which are published.

He now lives permanently in Spain.

Gordon Lawson composes in a very personal style; in these pieces he himself calls it "very traditional".

He himself states:
The pieces are not just for Holy Week, but also for other times when reflective music might be appropriate.
