BBC Singers

Biography

Active: 1930 - ; England

It has sung world premieres of such notable works as Britten's A Boy was Born and Hymn to St Cecilia, Poulenc's Figure Humaine, Henze's Orpheus Behind the Wire and numerous other works.

Under its conductor, Stephen Cleobury and his predecessors, it has made numerous recordings, including choral works of Charles Ives and Richard Strauss, and became the first choir to sing an a cappella selection as a part of one of the traditional Proms Concerts. Read less
