About Catherine

Catherine King, mezzo soprano, studied at Trinity College Cambridge and the Guildhall School of Music and lives near Ross-on-Wye. Concerts range from Verdi in Symphony Hall Birmingham and Elgar in Krakow to medieval songs in the USA and Spain (in ancient churches and caves!), from Bach throughout Europe, and Italian Baroque arias in Genoa to Scottish 20th and 21st Century songs in Poland. She performs across the world with recent concerts in Italy and Germany (Bach motets), London’s Cadogan Hall and the Tower of London (Gothic Voices), Edinburgh’s Usher Hall (Verdi Requiem), Snape Maltings (Britten Spring Symphony), Leominster Priory (Berlioz Les Nuits d’Été), Rochester Cathedral (Elgar Sea Pictures) and Madrid (lute song recitals).

Her many CDs include the highly acclaimed Galuppi, Forgotten Arias (Gramophone Editor’s Choice), Alto Arias by Bach, lute song CDs and numerous recordings with Gothic Voices. Her newest CD, Gothic Voices ‘Mary Star of the Sea’, was released by Linn Records to great critical acclaim. Catherine’s recordings are available on the discography page.

Future concerts include Germany, Oslo, Ireland and London, as well as a new CD recording ‘The Dufay Spectacle’ for Linn Records with Gothic Voices.

Catherine loves the Herefordshire countryside where she lives and also teaches singing, and enjoys swing dance and running.

“Catherine King’s velvety voice strokes and caresses every musical phrase with a beauty which takes your breath away.”
