Corydon Singers

Founded by Matthew Best in 1973, Corydon Singers are now widely recognised as one of the foremost choirs in Britain. Their first Hyperion recording, of Bruckner motets, was issued in 1983 and established them on the road to distinction. Their subsequent and numerous recordings, all for Hyperion, have consistently earned the approval of the press in Britain, Europe, the United States, Japan and elsewhere. Their 1990 recording of Vaughan William’s Serenade to Music and other works was selected as Record of the Year by both The Guardian and The Sunday Times, and was nominated for a Brit Award. Their recording of Rachmaninov’s Vespers was chosen as the preferred version in BBC Radio 3’s ‘Building a Library’ and their recording of Bruckner’s Te Deum and Mass in D minor was selected as one of the top releases of 1993 by the BBC’s Record Review. A great many of Corydon’s recordings have reached the Gramophone Awards short list in the choral section and they have four times been runner-up: in 1984 with Howells’s Requiem, 1990 with Vaughan Williams’s Serenade, 1996 Berlioz’s L’Enfance du Christ and in 1997 with Beethoven early cantatas.
