Ebbe Munk has been the conductor of the Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir since 1991, a year after the choir had won the first prize at the Concours International de Chant Choral in Narbonne. Munk was himself a chorister and later read musicology at Copenhagen University.
After studying choral conducting in Dresden, Munich, Budapest and the United States, he founded the Chamber Choir Vox Danica, specialising in modern choral music. The many CDs he has made with this choir, especially of Danish choral music, have received considerable acclaim both in Denmark and abroad. He has performed at many concerts in Europe and the United States with both Vox Danica and Sankt Annæ Gymnasiekor which he conducted from 1982 to 1991.
It is, however, primarily as the conductor of the Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir that Ebbe Munk has performed in concert halls and cathedrals all over the world. With this choir he has also conducted a number of major works in the choral repertoire together with leading Danish orchestras, and is involved in the production of many CDs of Danish choral music from the eighteenth century to the present. Since 1991 Ebbe Munk has also been choirmaster of Copenhagen Cathedral, often appearing at choir festivals and seminars in Denmark and abroad.
