About English Voices

Welcome to the official website for English Voices – Choir and Opera Chorus

English Voices delivers exquisite performances from a miraculous combination of supposed opposites: a tight ensemble of virtuoso soloists, English choral tradition with European qualities, crystalline purity with warm complexity and energetic dramatisation with choral perfection.

Testimonials

A pure feast for the eyes and for the ears

le choeur, English Voices, fait preuve d’une belle cohésion sans négliger une chorégraphie parfois complexe (ils réussissent à se mêler aux danseurs sans que l’on remarque leur différence)

Happy Birthday Ivor Bolton

"As Ivor Bolton approaches his birthday and we wish him a nearly-out-of-lockdown celebration, I am reminded of the times English Voices has spent singing for him over the years.   I have known Ivor ever since I arrived at Clare College in September if 1979, where I coincided with him as he studied for a BMus. Having been a brilliant organ scholar under John Rutter, he went on to become Director of Music at St James’s Piccadilly, which is where I first worked with him as a chorus master in the Lufthansa Festival. Thus began a long friendship that survives till today. " (click on the image to read more)
