COLIN BAYLISS was born in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire in 1948.

His life-long love of music led him to compose from an early age

and he now has a catalogue of over a hundred and fifty works

including two operas, four symphonies, six string quartets,

three piano sonatas and many other pieces for most

instrumental and chamber groupings.

This site lists his published compositions.

Details of his other works will be found in

The Music of Colin Bayliss: an annotated catalogue,

due for publication by Da Capo Music Ltd in the near future.

He is a member of the British Academy of Composers and

Songwriters, the North West Composers' Association

and the Performing Rights Society.

As well as writing music himself, he has also compiled

 catalogues of the earlier works of Anthony Hedges

and Sir Peter Maxwell Davies.

His concern for the state of music publishing led him

to found his own company in 1992 - Da Capo Music Ltd.

This company has to date published over 700 pieces,

mainly of today's composers, and also some recently

discovered pieces and arrangements of works by

composers of the past.

It has also begun to record some of these works

on compact disc under the New Century Classics label.
