Cecilia Osmond (soprano)

The Canadian-born soprano Cecilia Osmond is heard frequently as a soloist and as a member of elite vocal ensembles, such as The Cardinall’s Musick and The Tallis Scholars. She was educated at St Paul’s Girls’ School and Trinity College, Cambridge. During her postgraduate study at the Royal Academy of Music she was awarded the Silver Medal of the Worshipful Company of Musicians.

Notable solo performances include the title role in Handel’s Theodora with Nicholas McGegan at the Spitalfields Festival, Bach’s Weihnachts-Oratorium with the Gabrieli Consort and Paul McCreesh, Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem with the London Mozart Players, and Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 in the City of London Festival with St Paul’s Cathedral Choir.

Cecilia can be heard on over forty recordings, including solo appearances on award-winning discs with Polyphony and The King’s Consort. Her recent recordings include the critically acclaimed Bach Matthew Passion and Bach Mass in B minor, performed with solo voices by the Dunedin Consort and Players under John Butt.
