"I have always been prolific and I always will be. I have a piano in the kitchen so that I can start composing even as the kettle boils for my first morning cup of tea."
Music from the Movies magazine, Dec 2002
"Composing is of necessity a solitary act, but for me the most exciting part of the creative process is coming into the recording studio or the concert hall and working with my musicians, for all of whom I have the greatest respect and affection."
Serenade and Dance CD booklet, 1997
"It's never become a job, it's tremendously thrilling, in fact every aspect of it is thrilling or I wouldn't still be doing it. I feel a high as soon as I sight a studio at the end of the street, let alone actually set foot in it."
Music Writers on TV: Paul Lewis. HTV 1995
"This is what always excited me - and still does - that magical synthesis achievable with music and picture. It's what I wanted to do ever since seeing Laurence Olivier's film of 'Richard III' with Walton's glorious music when I was twelve."
Music from the Movies magazine, Dec 2002
"I love the medium of television because it gives me a direct line into people's homes and lives, bringing with it the responsibility to provide the best possible music for the largest imaginable audience."
Three Decades of Television Themes CD booklet, 2002
"It has always been a great delight to me to devise unexpected combinations of instruments to express the dramatic needs of a television drama without overstretching what might seem at first to be an impossibly low budget."
Music from the Movies, Dec 2002
"I'm not a post-modernist romantic - I've never been a modernist. I'm just an old-fashioned romantic."
The Landscape of Romance. Carlton Westcountry TV, 2002
