Vasari Singers was founded nearly 40 years ago and is among the leading chamber choirs in Britain. It will be featured in the 2017 Le Manoir Christmas Carol Concerts on Tuesday 12th December. Under the direction of its founder conductor Jeremy Backhouse, the chamber choir performs a wide range of repertoire from Renaissance to contemporary music. The choir is recognised widely for its Virtuosity, Versatility and Variety, performing with passion and sensitivity to exacting standards and considerable acclaim.
Vasari Singers performs regularly at major concert venues and other locations in London and elsewhere, including abroad. Participation in charitable, corporate and similar events and performing the music for cathedral services are all important occasions in the choir’s year. In June 2017 they will be performing the Bach B Minor Mass in St. James’s church, Piccadilly and in October 2017 they will be launching their latest recording with a performance of Rachmaninov’s All Night Vigil, also in London; their cathedral visits this year are to Worcester and Canterbury.
Vasari Singers is heard frequently on the radio, with both live performances and recordings from their extensive discography. Their 2012 release of a collection of Christmas works, A Winter’s Light, achieved chart success and their 2007 Noel Nouvelet was MusicWeb International’s Recording of the Month; world premiere recordings of their commissions have reached the top five in the specialist classical charts (Requiem by Gabriel Jackson) and recognition as MusicWeb International’s CD of the Year (The Cloud of Unknowing by Francis Pott); their most recent commission, Under the shadow of His wing by Jonathan Rathbone, was the first to be recorded and released under their own label, Vasari Media, in 2015. Many other recordings have also received high acclaim, with Vasari Singers described in reviews as “a consistently outstanding choir” and “one of the world’s finest choirs”.
