Edward Higginbottom


For well over six hundred years now, the sixteen choristers and the clerks of the Choir of New College have sung to the glory of God in a rhythm of worship and education that has remained largely unchanged to our own day, except that their sound now reaches out across the globe.

Director Edward Higginbottom brings to the interpretation of a wide repertoire the skill of an experienced choir director and the intellectual grasp of a distinguished scholar. During his time at New College, the Choir has become a world leader in performances of music stretching from Renaissance polyphony to contemporary scores.
