A UNIQUE SOUND
The inspiration for forming Cantoribus came from a desire to introduce an exciting and contemporary dimension to choral music. From my early days as a chorister at Portsmouth Cathedral, I felt a real affinity with singing and the wonderful choral tradition of this country. I later graduated to the world of the opera singer – a discipline that requires immense dedication and training.
What initially drew me to the operatic style of singing was the sheer power, both physically and emotionally, of the human voice when utilised to its fullest extent – the incredible palette of vocal colour and dramatic range, ably demonstrating the versatility of the operatic voice.
My vision, therefore, was to create an ensemble of hand-picked professional operatic voices – a ‘dream team’ of first-rate musicians – who also had choral experience. All members of Cantoribus regularly perform with the major UK opera companies as well as working on the London church circuit.
The resulting depth of sound delivers a much broader and more vibrant soundscape than you will have heard before in choral music.
