Founded over thirty years ago under Jeremy Backhouse, Vasari Singers is among the leading chamber choirs in Britain, performing music ranging from Renaissance to contemporary. Since winning the prestigious Sainsbury’s Choir of the Year competition in 1988, the choir has performed regularly on the South Bank and at major concert venues in London, as well as in many of the cathedrals and abbeys of the United Kingdom.

Backhouse and the Vasari Singers have broadcast frequently on BBC Radios 3 and 4, and have a discography of over 25 recordings on the EMI, Guild, Signum and Naxos labels. Two releases of choral works by Marcel Dupré received Gramophone’s ‘Editor’s Choice’ award. The album of Howells’ Requiem and Frank Martin’s Mass was nominated for a Gramophone Award, and Vaughan Williams’s Mass in G minor received a top recommendation on Radio 3’s ‘Building A Library’. Two previous releases on the Naxos label, Gabriel Jackson’s Requiem (8.573049) and A Winter’s Light (a Christmas collection) (8.573030) both achieved top ten status in the Specialist Classical Charts.
