Barbara Moore at the piano


Barbara was a hugely talented composer, arranger and vocalist. Her music spanned powerful car chase scenes to gentle vocal melodies and sophisticated jazz harmonies that were the soundtrack to our lives in the 1960s and 70s.

Barbara Moore has nearly 300 compositions to her name. She was the composer of Vocal Shades and Tones, one of the finest albums in the celebrated production music library De Wolfe Music. She’s the arranger who gave At the Sign of the Swingin’ Cymbal its kick and the ethereal vocalist who made that unforgettable sound in the opening bars of TV theme tune The Saint.
