Timothy Hamilton

Biography

Timothy Hamilton is a British composer, arranger 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 debut album Vision won widespread acclaim and firmly established him as an exciting and versatile composer.

Timothy's 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, USA and Canada. 

In 2012, Timothy 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 Vision, released on Stone Records in 2014. Achieving critical acclaim, it featured the group performing unaccompanied, with the majority of the pieces written by Timothy.

Also in 2012, Timothy was commissioned to compose a Requiem to commemorate the centenary of the start of World War 1. This work received its premiere at St. John's Wood Church on Remembrance Sunday 2014, albeit with small forces and abridged. In November 2015, 'Requiem' received its full premiere at St. Sepulchre-without-Newgate, London with full orchestra, chorus and international soloists, conducted by the composer. A week later, a recording of this work was made using the same musicians, produced by Adrian Peacock.  

The recording of 'Requiem' is due for release in November 2017 on the NAXOS label.  See here for more details:  https://www.naxos.com/catalogue/item.asp?item_code=8.573849
