David Temple (conductor)

David Temple, one of the country’s foremost choral directors, founded and continues to conduct Crouch End Festival Chorus. Musical Director of Hertfordshire Chorus since 2000, he has been instrumental in building the choir to a very high standard of performance.

Concert highlights with Hertfordshire Chorus include critically acclaimed performances of Elgar’s The Kingdom and The Apostles in St Albans Cathedral, frequent visits to Sage Gateshead, and the many commissions of the choir, including Codebreaker and Ode to a Nightingale. David is passionate about supporting the development of new music.

David has worked with many eminent conductors including Valery Gergiev, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Semyon Bychkov and Edward Gardner, preparing choirs for major performances. With Crouch End Festival Chorus he has completed a recording of Bach’s St John Passion for Chandos Records.

Not only involved with traditional classical music, David has collaborated closely for many years with Ray Davies, Oasis—and more recently, Noel Gallagher—as well as Goldfrapp, Travis, Bombay Bicycle Club and Basement Jaxx.

Recording work includes Bach’s St John Passion, music for the BBC’s Doctor Who at Air Studios and soundtracks such as Journey to the Center of the Earth, Prince Caspian and The Awakening. David is the regular UK chorusmaster for Ennio Morricone and Andrea Bocelli.
