Julian Stewart Lindsay

Julian Stewart Lindsay is a composer of music.
He has lived in many countries, and currently lives in the United Kingdom.
He was classically trained at The Royal Academy of Music in London.
After his studies he became involved with pop music. Some of the artistes with whom he worked include Culture Club, Stevie Wonder, The Beach Boys and many more.
He was variously an arranger, producer, songwriter, session-player, orchestrator and he even ran an artiste development company whose job it was to discover raw talent and bring it to the attention of the A & R depts. of the record labels. One of his collaborations as a songwriter is Maybe I Don't Know with Carl Wilson on The Beach Boys (album).
You can hear his string and horn arrangement on Lyin' In Bed by Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers. This was the first time that a reggae recording had made use of such a lush symphonic backing.
He also played keyboards for some of the Culture Club sessions; notably piano on "Victims" on Colour by Numbers.
He is best known as a composer for his work in television, but he also writes music for other platforms; particularly choral music of a meta-spiritual nature.
He has written the music for hundreds of television films and documentaries. One of his most successful television series was as composer for Jonathan Creek.
In 1999 he was commissioned by the Durham Cathedral Chorister School to write a new work for the millennium to be performed in Durham Cathedral.The result was Vox Dei which is a spiritual work inspired by the notion of Godliness/spirituality being in everything and everyone. It was performed with a choir of some 200 singers. The organist was Daniel Hyde who subsequently became an organ scholar at King's College Cambridge. The soloist who sang the title rôle in Vox Dei at its première was Gena West.
