Formed primarily as a recording and backing ensemble of male voices some 30 years ago under the direction of Alan Simmons, The Mastersingers has evolved into its present format of four female and eight male voices, the unique voicing – SATTBB.
The group’s repertoire ranges from medieval French carols through to clever arrangements of current pop songs and they are never frightened to explore new work – which lately has included some of the beautiful music of Eric Whitacre, and, most recently, music from Australia courtesy of the wonderful Ruth McCall. Our audiences are always delighted with the ‘surprises’ on offer!
The distinctive sound of The Mastersingers stems from its unique lineup and to celebrate 21 years since the ladies joined the men they performed a milestone concert at St Paul’s Hall at the University of Huddersfield on 15 March 2014.
