'Pott is one of today’s most interesting choral composers, managing to make challenging, intricate music instantly accessible. Even on a cold, snowy night he can draw a crowd.'
- Stephen Pritchard, Observer, 12 February 2012
Francis Pott's music has been heard in over 40 countries worldwide and in 2021 earned him the Medal of the Royal College of Organists - the institution's highest award - for distinguished achievement in the field of sacred choral and organ composition. A natural polyphonist and master of counterpoint, over many years he has demonstrated his ability to produce memorable and moving music on the grandest and the most intimately concentrated scale. Widely recorded, his choral works have been under exclusive contract to Edition Peters since 2013, with several earlier works available still from Oxford University Press, Novello & Co. and Ricordi [UK].
Since 2007 Francis Pott has been Professor of Composition at London College of Music in the University of West London. In 2018 he took partial retirement in order to devote more time to compositional projects. He has been the recipient of four national and two international awards, including the piano solo section of the 2nd S. S. Prokofiev International Composing Competition, Moscow, 1997.
