Christopher O'Gorman (tenor)

Christopher O’Gorman studied at the University of York where he gained an MA in vocal studies with John Potter. He currently studies with Paul Nilon and pursues a career both as a cathedral singer in the Choir of York Minster and as an ensemble singer with a number of groups including the Gabrieli Consort. As a soloist, Christopher is an active performer of medieval music, appearing on BBC television with the musicologist Mark Everist. His medieval drama roles include the title role in St Nicholas (York Minster), and the First King in Herod and the slaughter of the innocents. Other operatic roles have included Damon in Acis and Galatea.

As an ensemble singer, Christopher has toured the UK, Germany, Poland and Spain with the Gabrieli Consort and featured as a soloist in Byrd’s Great Service as part of the By morning glow and evening shade programme (Spitalfields Festival, Chester Summer Festival, York Early Music Festival and Brinkburn Festival). He has also been involved in performances and recordings of Berlioz’s Grande Messe des Morts (Wratislavia Cantans Festival) and Mendelssohn’s Elijah (BBC Proms, Leipzig Mendelssohn Festival and Wratislavia Cantans Festival). Other highlights include singing with the ABRSM chorus for the Vocal Futures production of Bach’s St Matthew Passion with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, and Berlioz’s L’Enfance du Christ with the Britten Sinfonia Voices conducted by Sir Mark Elder. Christopher has made a number of recordings as an ensemble singer, including premieres of works by Roger Marsh and Kerry Andrew, and little-known French baroque music with the Ebor Singers.
