Peter Tranchell started composing as a young schoolboy, and never stopped. His output across a wide range of genres was admired in the highest circles yet after the Mayor of Casterbridge and Zuleika he advanced almost nothing for publication, and his music is little known today. This website aims to give Tranchell's music the attention it deserves, and make it available for wider appreciation.
