Robert Hugill is a London based composer. Robert's cantata The Testament of Dr. Cranmer was issued on CD in 2007 on the Divine Art record label, in a performance by the eight:fifteen vocal ensemble under their conductor, Paul Brough. His motet, Deus in adjutorium (from the collection Tempus per annum), was given its Italian premiere in August 2008 in Verona by London Concord Singers and conductor Malcolm Cottle. This group also premièred Robert's The Woodward Scale in March 2009. A number of Robert's orchestra works have been premièred in London by the Salomon Orchestra (under conductor Adrian Brown). Robert's opera Garrett received its first performances in 2001 at Hoxton Hall, and his second opera When a man knows was premièred in June 2010 and received its first stage performances in March 2011 in a production by Ian Caddy at the Bridewell Theatre, London. Volume 3 of his collection Tempus per Annum (containing motets for the first 18 weeks of Ordinary Time) was issued in August 2011. His Elegy for baritone and piano sextet was premièred by the London Schubert Ensemble in August 2011. His songs were placed in the A E Housman competition, the Ivor Gurney competition and the 2012 Diamond Songs competition organised by the English Poetry and Song Society.
