TIMOTHY HAMILTON (b 1973 )
Timothy Hamilton is an English composer and conductor who is known for his accessible and communicative writing style. His music is imaginative and stimulating, and is quite individual within its conservative character.
His début album Vision, released on Stone Records in 2014, won widespread acclaim and firmly established him as an exciting composer of the English music tradition. His compositions include many choral and orchestral works, including several anthems and masses that are performed at various cathedrals, churches and concert venues throughout the UK, the US and Canada. His St John’s Wood Mass setting is very popular with many church congregations in the UK.
In 2012, Hamilton founded Cantoribus, an exciting vocal ensemble comprising operatic voices with extensive choral training and experience. The result was a series of highly successful concert performances, culminating in the recording of Vision.
Hamilton is also in demand as a composer and arranger for other genres, and has written music for companies as diverse as Nokia, Odgers Berndston and BNP Paribas.
