About Andrew Carter

Andrew Carter was born in 1939 into a Leicestershire family of tower and handbell ringers. Following a music degree at the University of Leeds, he joined York Minster Choir, and was subsequently Director of Music at the Bar Convent Grammar School, where he achieved his first successes as a choir trainer. His wealth of experience of directing both mixed-voice and upper-voice choirs has given him a deep understanding of the voice, expressed by a lyricism and sense of drama underpinned by distinctive, often bitter-sweet harmonies. His vast collection of anthems and Christmas carols, together with a substantial number of large-scale choral works, have earned him a reputation as one of Britain's most respected contemporary choral composers.show more

Review quote

Carter also spins a good melody, and he has a knack of illustrating the text with unexpected shifts, which do not pall on repetition. * Rosemary Broadbent, Church Music Quarterly Sept * . . . the pieces represented should not prove beyond even choirs of quite limited resources. The selection also provides a diversity of liturgical context and a variety of tones and moods within each composer's work, such that they could almost be sung through as a concert performance. * The Singer April 2003 * As the publisher rightly claims these anthologies will be indispensable to many choir libraries. * Music Teacher Sept 03 *show more
