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.

Review quote

Carter's music is attractive, rhythmic, and harmonically interesting without being dissonant . . . A delightful short setting and highly recommended. * Diapason (USA) * Andrew Carter's electric fanfare Hodie Christus natus est internalizes its fine (original) text so that the words give life to the music. This is Grand Premier Cru, vintage Oxford University Press cathedral music in the distinguished lineage of Britten's Jubilate and Mathias's Let the People Praise Thee. * Journal of American Anglican Musicians *
