Submit information about the music of Antony Pitts


Antony Pitts was born in 1969 and sang as a boy in the Chapel Royal, Hampton Court Palace. He was an Academic Scholar and later Honarary Senior Scholar at New College, Oxford, where he founded Tonus Peregrinus (8-part choir, released 2 CDs on Naxos, including the chart-topping "Passio" by Arvo Pärt). He graduated in 1990 with First-Class Honours in Music and in 1992 joined the BBC, where he now works part-time as a Senior Producer for BBC Radio 3. In 1996 he received the Radio Academy BT Award for an interactive internet experiment called "Facing the Radio", and for New Year’s Eve 1999 he devised an 18-hour history of Western Music called "The Unfinished Symphony". He has composed since an early age and his music has been premiered in the Wigmore Hall in London and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. In the last few years he has written pieces for the Swingle Singers, the Choir of Westminster Cathedral, the Clerks’ Group, and the Oxford Camerata. The Berlin Radio Choir commissioned his "XL", a forty part motet to complement Thomas Tallis’s "Spem in Alium", for first performance in March 2003 in the Philharmonie Kammermusiksaal in Berlin.
