    Jackman, Jeremy

    He is an English countertenor whose musical education began as a chorister at St. Paul's Cathedral, London.   He attended Hull University and the Royal College of Music and then went on to work as a free-lance singer while continuing further study.  In 1978 he was appointed Lay Clerk at Westminster Cathedral but continued as a soloist in opera and ensembles.  In 1980 he became one of the King's Singers, who he was with until 1990 when he became a choral director and conductor, giving workshops and master-classes for established choirs.  He has conducted in venues including the Royal Albert Hall and Belfast Cathedral and many international concert halls.    He is also a composer and arranger who has arranged songs for the King’s Singers, a series of carols for the Dutch publisher Harmonia, Taiwanese folksongs and many Renaissance translations.
