"As a conductor Hayes was active in Oxford and London where he directed the annual Festival of the Sons of the Clergy after the death of William Boyce and concerts of the charitable New Musical Fund... As a composer Hayes's natural language was a mixture of galant and early classical idioms allied with a characteristically English preference for simple, symmetrically phrased melodies and an assured technique founded upon a thorough acquaintance with the works of Handel."
