Eclipse - the 10-minute piece depicts the stages of a Total Eclipse of the Sun (with Totality in 11/8 time, a reference to the time and date of the 1999 Eclipse: 11.11a.m on 11/08)

Star-gazing - the 15-minute piece is scored for soprano and orchestra, and Judy's words and music guide the listener through the legends behind some of the Northern Hemisphere's clearest constellations.

Dartmoor Letterboxes - the 15-minute orchestral piece, commissioned in memory of a keen local 'Letterboxer', depicts 7 of Dartmoor's Tors linked by a recurring Walking Theme.

Heaven's Thunder - Judy was Musical Director and Composer for this epic 2021 theatrical performance by horses and humans. Scored for a combined 4-part choir of 50 and a community instrumental ensemble, Judy directed from the piano.

Blue Skies - a joyful 5-minute work for solo flute and strings, performed at Sterts Theatre, Cornwall with flautist Anne Kimber and the Plymouth Symphony Strings.

Bright Lights in the Autumn Night - a 15-minute work for brass quintet. Judy chose the 3 planets clearly visible each night in Autumn 2020 as her inspiration for this evocative piece in 5 movements: Jupiter. Saturn, Mars, La Luna and Our Blue Planet.

Manana - a catchy 3-part song on the theme of Climate Change. Judy was commissioned by Sing Eden! (an Eden Project initiative) and Re: Imagine Kernow. Contact Judy for a score of this song.
