Philip Henderson started composing in 1969 when he joined Radio Luxembourg to write station jingles. Carlin Music Corporation of America then signed him as a contract songwriter. During that period he co-composed and conducted two choral works recorded by the Ambrosian Singers. He orchestrated Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett’s Prizefighters performed by Bonnie Tyler on Steve’s Feedback 86 album. With Michael Ward providing the lyric their song Symphony for My Love went Platinum in Denmark in 1998. In 2005 Philip composed the musical score for The Far Pavilions which ran for six months in London’s West End at the Shaftesbury Theatre. A CD of the score featuring The City of London Sinfonia conducted by Philip was released on Stage Door Records in 2009. A concert of Philip’s classical music held at Cadogan Hall, London in 2010 featured his string quartet The Hop-picker's Daughter and two works for ten solo strings The Magic Wood and Sea Voices.
