Evans, Robert

He is an English bass/baritone who started his life in music by performing as a chorister at Hereford Cathedral.  He studied singing but started his working life in a number of industries before eventually making his decision to take up music professionally.

He became a mature student at the Royal College of Music and debuted with The London Oratory at the Royal Festival Hall in 1987.   He became a member of the Westminster Cathedral Choir and during his decade with them performed on a recording, which won them the 1999 Gramophone Record of the Year.

As the new millennium came in he relocated to Salisbury and started working as a freelance soloist and ensemble member.  This has led him to working nationally and internationally with many groups as a guest artist or member. They include The Cardinall’s Musick, The Gabrieli Consort, The King’s Consort, Musica Antiqua, Oxford Camerata and The Sixteen and he has also performed at the Winchester and County Music Festival and a production of J.S. Bach’s St. John Passion at Salisbury Cathedral among others.

Appearing on numerous recordings, he can be heard on Byrd: Hodie Simon Petrus by The Cardinall’s Musick, A Venetian Christmas by the Gabrieli Consort,  Purcell: The Complete Sacred Music by The King’s Consort , The Pilgrimage to Santiago by The New London Consort,   Hildegard von Bingen: Heavenly Revelations by Oxford Camerata , An Eternal Harmony, Handel: Israel in Egypt and A Golden Age of Portuguese Choral Music by The Sixteen.

Outside of the classical side of music, he has sung on London’s West End and has lent his voice to the soundtracks of movies such as Crimson Tide, The Da Vinci Code, King Arthur, Muppet Treasure Island, Pirates of the Caribbean II and Sleepy Hollow.
