Nathan took early encouragement from Ruth Gipps before studying composition with Peter Aston and Norman Kay. Predominantly a choral composer and arranger, Nathan's music has been heard in churches and cathedrals across the UK, Europe and America. He is a regular contributor to the London Festival of Contemporary Church Music and has also had premieres of his work at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Brighton Fringe, Villages Music Festival (Sussex), Crossing Borders Festival, and London's Royal Festival Hall.  His new edition of Beethoven's Choral Symphony (arranged for string quartet, trumpet & piano and transposed down a major 3rd) was premiered in 2018.
