Williams, Roderick

Baritone soloist Roderick Williams is becoming increasingly well-known as a composer. His Advent antiphon O Adonai has received numerous recordings and performances around the world while his motet Ave Verum Re-imagined after Byrd was awarded a BASCA prize in 2016. An entire album of his sacred choral works was released on the Signum label in 2017. He has been commissioned by Tenebrae, Ex Cathedra, Voces8, and the BBC Singers (who recently appointed him Associate Composer). Roderick sang his own orchestrated arrangements at the Last Night of the Proms in 2014 and the Hallé orchestra released an English Song disc, orchestrated and sung by Roderick, conducted by Sir Mark Elder. Roderick was chosen personally by King Charles III to write music for his Coronation service in May 2023. Selected music is published by OUP and Edition Peters.
