About Gabriel Jackson

Gabriel Jackson was born in Bermuda. After three years as a chorister at Canterbury Cathedral he studied composition at the Royal College of Music. Jackson's music has been commissioned, performed and broadcast worldwide, and his works have been presented at many festivals including Aldeburgh, Cheltenham, Spitalfields, and the BBC Proms. His liturgical pieces are in the repertoires of many of Britain's cathedral and collegiate choirs, and his choral works in general
have been recorded by some of the world's leading choirs including Polyphony, The Vasari Singers, The State Choir of Latvia, and Merton College Choir, Oxford. He is currently the Associate Composer to the BBC Singers, who have premiered and broadcast a number of recent commissions. Over recent years
Jackson's music has been equally focussed on instrumental works. Commissions include works for organist Michael Bonaventure, Red Note Ensemble, and the Lunar Sax Quartet.

Review quote

Gabriel Jackson, who has five works in New Horizons opening salvo, has been steadily building a reputation since the early '90s as one of the UK's most accomplished writers of choral music . . . Jackson's assimilation of a range of influences and choral experience has resulted in a highly personal and rewarding idiom that can offer something to choirs of pretty much any ability level. It is good to see OUP making his work more widely available. * Matthew Greenall, The Singer, Feb 04 * Gabriel Jackson describes his music as essentially contemplative. This is true of both responses, which have a fluid but calm quality throughout. Through voice quality and varying tonalities - not to mention exquisite harmony - Jackson plays with different textures and colours to illustrate his text. These are challenging pieces, not least in respect of the control needed to sustain long lines and true intonation; but for the choir who could cope, they would be a
worthwhile alternative to the Matin and Vesper Responsories by Palestrina. * Music Teacher June 2004 *
