“Joanna’s choral music is melodious, uplifting and accessible” Ben Parry
My background is steeped in the English choral tradition. Singing with my village church choir when I was growing up, with Schola Cantorum of Oxford as an undergraduate and, as a professional, with the world-class chamber choir Tenebrae has taught me so much about choral writing. My compositions are published by the Royal School of Church Music, Faber Music, Oxford University Press and andagio.
Commissions have come from vocal groups and choirs including The King’s Singers (Quintessentially, for their 50th anniversary), The Military Wives Choirs (We will remember them), the Royal School of Church Music (The Chorister’s Prayer) from King’s Voices in Cambridge (King’s College Service) and from church choirs in the USA (Preces and Responses.)
Commercial recordings include by Tenebrae and the choir of St Catharine’s College, Cambridge (Advent ‘O’ Carol).
Would you like me to write a new piece for your choir? Feel free to get in touch.
