Grayston Ives is a former member of the King’s Singers, singing tenor from 1978-85. Until March 2009 Ives was Informator Choristarum (teacher of the choirboys), organist and Fellow and Tutor in Music at Magdalen College Oxford. His choral output ranges from canticles, anthems and motets to arrangements of spirituals, folk-songs and I’ve got you under my skin. His Listen sweet dove, a setting of lines from George Herbert’s collection The Temple, dates from 1973.
