As Composer, Arranger and Publisher, Tim’s music ranges from small beginner pieces for woodwind ensembles to large-scale choral and orchestral works. Tim’s music is published in the UK by Tim Knight Music through the Highlands-based music hub Spartan Press, in Canada by Animus and Lighthouse Music Publications and in the USA, by Paraclete Press, Alliance and Cantica Nova. 

By far the largest part of Tim's output is choral music and he has a special interest in music for the smaller choir which has led to the creation of a hugely successful Accessible Choral Library imprint for these works which also includes other composers in the series.

Tim's music has found its way onto exam lists and festival programmes and has won awards from the Royal School of Church Music, the British Academy of Songwriters, The Masterworks Prize 2006 and other bodies including the Oare String Composers' competition.

The piece, "Elegy for an English Summer" which you can hear via the link was recorded on Volume 11 of the "Masterworks of a New Era CD Series" and received widespread radio play and, for this piece, Tim has just been nominated for the fourth time in the Classic FM Hall of Fame.

His work has been performed in concert halls, (indeed, for the opening of the new concert hall in Lieden Holland) schools and Cathedrals within the UK, Europe and America. He has undertaken a "Composer in Residence" visit to Clarke University Dubuque in Iowa for the premiere of his Requiem Aeternam and also at the Royal Canadian College of Organists Conference in Prince Edward Island.

Commissions form an important part of Tim's composing life and he has written for choirs, instrumentalists and individuals. Recent pieces have included a Flute and Piano Suite, a Flute Choir Suite for Sheffield Flute Choir, a Wedding Anthem and a Christmas Carol for the Yorkshire Decibelles.

In 2017, Tim completed a large-scale Tone Poem for Organ, "Atlantic Rhapsody", which was a commission to illustrate the crossing of the Atlantic in a small boat and premiered in March 2018 at St Bartholomew's Church in Armley. 

In addition to this premiere performance, Tim is having an excellent composing year to date in 2018, with 3 pieces being selected for inclusion in the London Festival of Contemporary Church Music, one of which, 'Ave Verum Corpus' will be performed at St Giles Church, Cripplegate for the Ascension Day service on 13th May 2018. Tim has also released several new pieces with Spartan Press, together with 'Prayer of St Columba' which has been accepted for distribution by Paraclete Press in the USA and a new Woodwind Suite for Forton Music.
