Intriguing indeed! Nothing additional to what can be found by searching on the net. It seems that he was born in 1928 and that he lived at one time in Guildford. He has/had a B. Mus. and a PH.D and was an honorary Fellow of Trinity College of Music. In 1957 and 1958 he won Royal Philharmonic Society Composition Prizes. He wrote an introduction to a book on Wagner's opera "Tristan und Isolde". As you say, Bryden Thomson championed his music in the 1980s with broadcast performances of the Symphony No.1 "The Mystic" and the Violin Concerto (I have recordings of both).
But apart from that I regret that I know no more. Someone must know something though........?
