WESTMINSTER WILLIAMSON VOICES

The GRAMMY®-nominated Westminster Williamson Voices, named after the founder of Westminster Choir College, John Finley Williamson, is lauded by reviewers and audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. Founded by James Jordan in 2003, the ensemble has quickly distinguished itself in the choral world for its distinctive artistry and compelling sound, recordings, educational outreach and its passionate mission to perform new music and forge close relationships with composers. Gramophone magazine has praised the Westminster Williamson Voices as an ensemble of “intimate and forceful choral artistry” with a tone that is “controlled and silken in sustained phrases as they are vibrantly sonorous in extroverted material… (singing) with a precision and finesse normally found in the best of the UK’s large chamber choirs.” American Record Guide praised the ensemble as “without peer.” Choral Journal has described the Westminster Williamson Voices as an ensemble of “supreme artistry” and a choir that performs with “truth and precision.” The choir is one of the select ensembles at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey, a division of Rider University’s Westminster College of the Arts www.rider.edu/westminster. It received a GRAMMY® nomination for its recording of Annelies by James Whitbourn in 2013. Each summer the ensemble is in residence at the Choral Institute at Oxford, one of the world’s leading programmes for the education of conductors.
