Edmund Newton-Rex

born: ?
country: United Kingdom

Ed Rex has had ties with King’s since joining as a chorister when he was eight years old. It was on tour with the Choir that he first heard the King’s choral scholars singing close harmony; one particularly fine rendition of Stormy Weather was enough to set him on course for a long love affair with the genre. Going on to The King’s School, Canterbury, he wrote several of the arrangements on this disc for the a cappella group there, which cheekily also performed under the moniker The King’s Men. In 2007 he decided he could stay away from King’s no longer and returned to the Choir as a choral scholar. Over his three years at Cambridge he played flute in the University Jazz Orchestra, wrote music for the ADC Theatre, and did a spell as musical director of The King’s Men, writing a number of arrangements for the group to sing at various events in Cambridge (at the same time as getting the top starred first in music in the University).

Since leaving Cambridge, Ed has had a number of choral pieces published by Novello, and Boosey & Hawkes, and was commissioned to write the Introit for the BBC Radio 3 broadcast from the Edington Festival in 2012. He has arranged for the King’s Singers, has composed music for various plays, and writes about technology and the arts for The Spectator. He has now found his way into the tech world, and is currently to be found running a music start-up out of Google Campus in London.
