William Gaunt (bass)

William Gaunt was born in Yorkshire and began his musical education there as a chorister at Ripon Cathedral. Following a choral scholarship to King’s College, Cambridge, where he read Classics, he has since held posts in the choirs of Christ Church, Oxford and Westminster Cathedral.

William has developed a busy and versatile career as both a soloist and a consort singer. In the latter capacity he performs and records regularly with many of the UK’s most prominent ensembles, including The Gabrieli Consort, The King’s Consort, Tenebrae, Alamire and Gallicantus.

As a soloist William performs much of the core concert and oratorio repertory, and has sung Puccini Messa di Gloria with Ite O’Donovan at the National Concert Hall, Dublin; Handel Belshazzar at the Proms for Sir Charles Mackerras; Bach Johannes-Passion, Purcell Come, ye Sons of Art, away and other odes with Paul McCreesh; Haydn Nelson Mass, Mozart Requiem, and Schumann Szenen aus Goethes Faust with Stephen Cleobury, as well as Fauré Requiem, Handel Messiah, Haydn Creation and Mozart C Minor Mass. Recordings include numerous performances with the choir of Westminster Cathedral, The Gabrieli Consort, and Monteverdi Vespro della Beata Vergine 1610 with Robert Howarth and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.

Alphabetical listing of all musical works

A quanti, già felici in giovanezza  
Ad te levavi oculos meos (White)
Aestimatus sum  
Amicus meus osculi me  
Animam meam dilectam  
Astiterunt reges terrae  
Caligaverunt oculi mei a fletu meo  
Chi ad una ad una raccontár potesse  
Christe qui lux es I (White)
Christe qui lux es IV (White)
Come falda di neve  
Così talhor  
Domine, quis habitabit? III (White)
È non fu il pianto suo rivo  
E vago d'incontrár chi giusta pena  
Ecce quomodo moritur  
Elijah (Mendelssohn)
Eram quasi agnus innocens  
Exaudiat te Dominus (White)
Giovane donna il suo bel volto in specchio  
Il magnanimo Pietro  
Iustus ut palma (Mawby)
Jesum tradidit impius summis principibus sacerdotum  
Judas mercator pessimus  
Lagrime di San Pietro (Lassus)
Lamentations a 6 (White)
Ma gli archi  
Manus tuae fecerunt me (White)
Miserere mei, Deus (White)
Missa Surge propera (Victoria)
Missa Te Deum laudamus (Palestrina)
Negando il mio Signór  
Nessún fedél trovai, nessún cortese  
Non trovava mia fé si duro intoppo  
O vita troppo rea  
O vos omnes, qui transitis per viam  
Ogni occhio del Signór lingua veloce  
Qual a l'incontro di quegli occhi santi  
Quel volto, ch'era poco inanzi stato  
Queste opre e più  
Recessit pastor noster  
Requiem, Op 48 (Fauré)
Seniores populi consilium fecerunt  
Sepulto Domino  
Tamquam ad latronem existis  
Te Deum laudamus  
Tenebrae factae sunt  
Tenebrae Responsories (Victoria)
The Edinburgh Te Deum (MacMillan)
The long day closes (Sullivan/Lawson)
Tradiderunt me in manus impiorum  
Tre volte haveva a l'importuna  
Una hora non potuistis vigilare mecum  
Unus ex discipulis meis  
Váttene, vita, va  
Veduto il míser quanto differente  
Vide homo, quae pro te patior
