Susan Gritton

Biography

Born: Reigate, England  
Susan Gritton is an English soprano who made her breakthrough to singing principal roles in 1999.

After studying botany at Oxford and London Universities she moved her avocational voice training up to a professional level, then took up singing as a career. She first came to prominence when she won the coveted Kathleen Ferrier Memorial Award in 1994.

This resulted in her solo recital debut at London's Wigmore Hall, with Eugene Asti
Read more as accompanist. She joined Graham Johnson in the International Songmakers' series, and made extensive appearances in recital throughout England, especially in summer festivals, appearing at the Lichfield, Arundel, Aldeburgh, Cheltenham, Harrowgate, and City of London Festivals, as well as in the Salzburg Mozartwoche. In 1996 she was invited to appear three times in the BBC Henry Wood Promenade Concerts. One of her early festival appearances was at the Istanbul Festival where she sang the part of Blondchen in Mozart's Die Entführung aus dem Serail in the city where the story is set.

The first few years in her operatic career were in smaller and character parts, such as the First Niece in Britten's Peter Grimes, Frasquita in Bizet's Carmen, Clarine and Thalie in Rameau's Platée, Xenia in Mussorgsky's Boris Godunov, Sister Constance in Poulenc's Dialogues des Carmelites, the Mermaid in Weber's Oberon, and Tiny in Britten's Paul Bunyan. She sang Belinda in Purcell's Dido and Aeneas at the Berlin Staatsoper, Fulvia in Handel's Ezio with the King's Consort in the Théâtre des Champs Elysée of Paris, Atalanta in Handel's Xerxes at the English National Opera, the Governess in Britten's The Turn of the Screw and Lucia in Britten's The Rape of Lucretia in the Aldeburgh Festival under Steuart Bedford's direction, Susanna in Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro and Zerlina in Don Giovanni for the Glyndebourne Festival and Touring Operas.

Gritton became known as a reliable recording artist early in her career. On the Tring label she sang the soprano part in Górecki's Symphony No. 3 (Symphony of Sorrowful Songs), the part of Miss Wordsworth in the Collins Classics recording under Steuart Bedford of Britten's Albert Herring, a set of Holst songs for the same label, Vivaldi's Ottone in Villa on Chandos with Hickox conducting, several Purcell discs, sacred music of Handel and Handel's Deborah and Occasional Oratorio with the King's Consort on Hyperion, and, on Deutsche Grammophon, Handel's Solomon (as the Queen of Sheba) and Messiah as well as Beethoven's little-known Vesta's Feuer. Her first solo recital disc was a collection of songs by Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel on Hyperion, and her first operatic lead was as Handel's Theodora with Paul McCreesh and the Gabrieli Consort & Players for Deutsche Grammophon's Archiv label. She also recorded the Purcell/Britten realizations on Hyperion with Graham Johnson.

For the 1999 - 2000 season she received a contract as a principal singer at the English National Opera. Her debuts in lead roles in that capacity were as Pamina in The Magic Flute and the title role in Janacek's The Cunning Little Vixen, as well as appearances as Drusilla in Monteverdi's The Coronation of Poppea and Hero in Berlioz's Beatrice et Benedict.

1. Prelude
2. The Sons of Israel do mourn
3. He put on righteousness
4. When the ear heard him
5. How is the mighty fall'n
6. He deliver'd the poor
7. How is the mighty fall'n
8. The righteous shall be had
9. Their bodies are buried in peace
10. The people will tell
11. They shall receive a glorious kingdom
12. The merciful goodness of the Lord
13. Now there arose a new king
14. And the children of Israel
15. Then sent he Moses
16. They loathed to drink of the river
17. Their land brought forth frogs
18. He spake the word
19. He gave them hailstones
20. He sent a thick darkness
21. He smote all the first-born of Egypt
22. But as for his people
23. Egypt was glad
24. He rebuked the Red Sea
25. He led them through the deep
26. But the waters overwhelmed their enemies
27. And Israel saw that great work
28. And believed the Lord
29. Moses and the children of Israel
30. I will sing unto the Lord
31. The Lord is my strength
32. He is my God
33. The Lord is a man of war
34. The depths have cover'd them
35. Thy right hand, O Lord
36. Thou sendest forth thy wrath
37. And with the blast of thy nostrils
38. The enemy said
39. Thou Didst Blow
40. Who is like unto thee
41. Thou in thy mercy
42. The people shall hear
43. Thou shalt bring them in
44. The Lord shall reign for ever and ever
45. For the horse of Pharaoh
46. The Lord shall reign for ever and ever
47. And Miriam the prophetess
48. Sing ye to the Lord

Sacred raptures
" Throughout the land "
Bless'd be the Lord
What tho' I trace
" And see my Queen "
" Bless'd the day "
Thou fair inhabitant of Nile
Welcome as the dawn of day
Vain are the transient beauties
Indulge thy faith
My blooming fair
Haste to the cedar grove
When thou art absent
With thee th'unshelter'd moor
Search round the world
" May no rash intruder "
" From the censer "
Prais'd be the Lord
When the sun o'er yonder hills
Great prince
Thrice bless'd that wise discerning king
" My sovereign liege "
Words are weak
What says the other
Thy sentence, great king
Withhold, withhold the executing hand!
Can I see my infant gor'd
" Israel' attend "
" Thrice bless'd be the king "
" From the east unto the west "
From morn to eve
See the tall palm
No more shall armed bands
Beneath the vine

Ev'ry sight these eyes behold
Sweep, sweep the string
Music, spread thy voice around
" Now a diff'rent measure" - " Shake the dome "
Then at once from rage remove
Draw the tear from hopeless love
Next the tortur'd soul release
Thus rolling surge rise
" Thy harmony's divine "
Pious king
Thrice happy king
Golden columns
" Praise the Lord "
Gold now is common
How green our fertile pastures look!
May peace in Salem
Will the sun forget to streak
Adieu, fair queen
Ev'ry joy that wisdom knows
The name of the wicked
