Tamsin Jones is an award-winning UK composer, and an associate lecturer at the International Centre for Music Studies at Newcastle University.
Born in the West Midlands, Tamsin studied at Newcastle University and the University of Birmingham before pursuing a career in singing and teaching. She established herself as a composer with the release of her album ‘Of a Rose’ in 2017, recorded by the one-man choir Matthew Curtis. A series of awards followed, including the NIPOS (Czech Arts Council) choral composition competition and the inaugural SPARK! competition.
Tamsin is renowned for her choral compositions, particularly Noel: Verbum Caro Factum Est which has been published in the groundbreaking Multitude of Voyces anthology and has been performed across the UK, Europe and Canada. Her diverse commissions include works for Celtic harp, and a miniature ballet for Western instruments and gamelan. Upcoming highlights include premieres of her work in the USA and commissions for Belmont Chamber Chorus, Woldingham School, and St Mary’s Scholars Warwick.
This CD is a delight to listen to. The harmonies and the counterpoint are superbly blended and the whole listening experience is highly enjoyable. These modern compositions reflect in a wonderful way the best of the periods on which many of them are based.Jolyon Dodgson, MBE
