“King’s mezzo rose with the sun to a central ecstasy of melody for which not even the beauty of earlier pieces by Hildegard had prepared us.”

– Hildegard of Bingen, Spitalfields Festival, The Times

 

From Bach to Elgar, Vivaldi to Verdi, from demanding new works to ageless soaring Hildegard, Catherine has earned respect in each of the many different fields in which she works. Described in Gramophone as “bell-voiced… with firm clear tone, elegant phrasing and agile, precise coloratura”, she can also be “splendidly vehement and…  tenderly musing”.

Catherine is a British soloist whose career takes her to venues across Europe and beyond. She captivates her audience whether on the operatic stage, singing a great oratorio in an English cathedral, giving a solo recital with piano or renaissance instruments, or through her many recordings.
