Mark Browse was born in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, and was educated at Borden School, Sittingbourne (Kent) and at St Peter’s College, Oxford, where he read Modern Languages. He has been involved in choral music since his schooldays, singing with a number of groups of various sizes, including the Oxford Bach Choir and the English Arts Chorale.
Mark’s compositions are predominantly choral, and range from short songs and anthems to larger works such as the opera Margaret of Antioch (premièred in 2004) and the oratorio The Mysteries of Joy (first performed in 2010). As well as performances in the UK, his music has been heard both in New York and in Washington State on the west coast of the USA. His Christmas anthem Lute-book Lullaby has even been translated into Norwegian and performed north of the Arctic Circle. Another Christmas piece, There is no rose, was broadcast by BBC Radio in 2004.
