Composers

Biography

Born: November 6, 1941; Oxford, England  
James Bowman has been a model for an entire generation of countertenors. A fixture on the operatic and concert stages of Europe since the late 1960s, he has made more than 130 commercial recordings. His distinctive voice -- highly expressive and colorful, if not conventionally beautiful -- is well-suited to the music of Handel, Purcell, and Benjamin Britten, all of whom have been pillars of his prolific career.

Bowman began singing as an
Read more alto chorister in the choirs of Ely Cathedral and Oxford's New College, where he received degrees in education and history. His solo career began with a successful audition for Benjamin Britten's English Opera Group in 1967. The composer offered him the role of Oberon in his A Midsummer Night's Dream, as well as a concert at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall. Bowman continued to sing Oberon throughout his career, and made an excellent recording of the role for Hyperion in 1990. His association with Britten would continue, as well; the composer wrote the role of Apollo in Death in Venice for him, and also dedicated his Canticle No. 4 to Bowman.

In 1970, Bowman became the first countertenor to sing at Glyndebourne, in a production of Cavalli's La calisto. By 1972, he had also debuted with the English National Opera and Covent Garden in operas of Handel (Semele) and Peter Maxwell Davies (Taverner). He would eventually sing most of the great Handelian operas, including Xerxes, Giulio Cesare, Orlando, and Rinaldo.

Bowman has premiered a number of contemporary works, aside from those already mentioned. He was the first to sing the role of Astron in Michael Tippett's opera The Ice Break, in 1977; he sang Alan Ridout's Phaeton for BBC Radio; Michael Nyman wrote his Self-Laudatory Hymn of Inanna and Her Omnipotence for Bowman; and Bowman was the first to record John Tavener's Akathist of Thanksgiving and a number of works by Geoffrey Burgon.

As an oratorio singer, Bowman has been successful in standard roles, like Handel's Messiah and Chandos Anthems, Vivaldi's Salve Regina, Orff's Carmina Burana, and Henry Purcell's Birthday Odes. Purcell's music has been a particular focus of his recordings on the Hyperion label, most of which have been in collaboration with Robert King and the King's Consort.

Paris has been almost a second home to Bowman during his career, and in recognition of his contribution to Parisian culture, the government made him Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 1992. He also presented a sold-out 25th anniversary concert at the Palais Garnier that same year. Read less

Hear us, great Rugwith
Hear, ye Gods of Britain
Sing, sing, ye Druids
Divine Andante, president of war
To arms
Britons strike home
O lead me to some peaceful gloom
We must assemble by a sacrifice
Their necessary aid you use
Come every demon
Lovers who to their first embraces go
Magicians' Dance . . . Pluto, arise!
Sing all ye muses
When the world first knew creation
Let the dreadful engines

Since times are so bad

Prepare, the rites begin
Can'st thou, Marina

Sad as death at dead of night
Dream no more of pleasures past
Hail to the myrtle shade
Ah! Cruel, bloody fate
Nymphs and Shepherds

To arms, heroic prince
Hear, ye sullen powers below

Herr, unser Herrscher
Jesus ging mit seinen Jungern
O gross Lieb, o Lieb ohn alle Masse
Auf dass das Wort erfullet wurde
Dein Will gescheh, Herr Gott, zugleich
Die Schar aber und der Oberhauptmann
Von den Strikken meiner Sunden
Simon Petrus aber folgete Jesu nach
Ich folge dir gleichfalls
Derselbige Junger war dem Hohenpriester bekannt
Wer hat dich so geschlagen
Und Hannas sandte ihn gebunden
Ach, mein Sinn, wo willt du endlich hin
Petrus, der nicht denkt zuruck
Er nahm alles wohl in acht
Und von Stund an nahm sie der Junger zu sich
Es ist vollbracht
Und neiget das Haupt und verschied
Mein teurer Heiland, lass dich fragen
Und siehe da, der Vorhang im Tempel zerriss
Mein Herz, indem die ganze Welt
Zerfliesse, mein Herze
Die Juden aber, dieweil es der Rusttag war
O hilf, Christe, Gottes Sohn
Darnach bat Pilatum Joseph von Arimathia
Ruht wohl, ihr heiligen Gebeine
Ach Herr, lass dein lieb Engelein
