Philip Arnold Heseltine (30 October 1894 – 17 December 1930), known by the pseudonym Peter Warlock, was a British composer and music critic. The Warlock name, which reflects Heseltine's interest in occult practices, was used for all his published musical works. He is best known as a composer of songs and other vocal music; he also achieved notoriety in his lifetime through his unconventional and often scandalous lifestyle.

Warlock: Songs . John Mark Ainsley. Adrian Thompson does a more than decent job, though his voice is not as beautiful as it could be; at least he sounds wholly committed, which is probably the main objection to John Mark Ainsley, who sometimes sounds a little detached even though he has a wonderful voice for this music.

He scandalised the villagers with his raucous parties, numerous girlfriends - and even on one occasion by riding around the town naked on his beloved motorcycle. Peggy Eaves was a little girl when Warlock lives in the village - but he made an impression. She talked to a local author about her memories of the composer, when Warlock lived in the village with . Moeran, Peter Warlock and Hal Collins
