David Allsopp

Countertenor

(Republic of Ireland only)

"utterly glorious countertenor"  (The Organ Magazine)

"a very intelligent singer, with a most beautiful voice"  (Opera Britannia)

“Highly intelligent, vocally brilliant countertenor” David Allsopp began his musical training at an early age as a chorister at Rochester Cathedral and went on to spend four years as a choral scholar at King’s College, Cambridge. From there he moved to the renowned Westminster Cathedral Choir where he combined his growing career as a soloist with the daily services.

David sings with many of London’s major consort groups and has toured extensively both in Europe and further afield. On the solo platform, he has given many performances – although he specialises mainly in Baroque repertoire, his background means that he is equally at home with renaissance and medieval works and with more modern composers such as Britten and Tavener. Recent appearances have seen David in venues such as Karlsruhe Opera House, the Musikverein in Vienna and St John’s, Smith Square in London. His critically acclaimed performance of Othniel in Handel’s Joshua appears on the Maulbronn Monastery Edition series and he features in recordings on the EMI Classics, Deutsche Grammophon and Hyperion labels.
