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

Andrew Carter's For the beauty of the earth adds another attractive setting of these famous words to the musical repertoire and, I believe, one that is most worthy of performance. Set to a lyrical melody in triple time the composition contains some effective writing, including a particularly decorative flute part and some interesting changes of key. With purity and accuracy of voice I am certain that this piece could generate some effective performances. * Music Teacher March 2002 * Easy and instantly gratifying. * Organists' Review May 2002 *show more
