His debut album Timothy Hamilton: Vision
, released on Stone Records in 2014, won widespread acclaim and firmly established him as an exciting and popular composer.
His latest recording, Requiem, was released in November 2017 on NAXOS and features Nicky Spence
, Jennifer JohnstonIlona Domnich
David Stout Cantoribus
and the Rosenau Sinfonia. Requiem was commissioned to commemorate the centenary of the First World War and draws its inspiration from the Roman liturgy. In twelve movements, it conjures up a vivid sequence of images depicting both the horror of war and the calmness and eeriness of the aftermath of battle, interspersed with moments of sombre and contemplative reflection.
In 2012, Hamilton founded Cantoribus, an exciting vocal ensemble comprising operatic voices with extensive choral training and
experience. The result was a series of highly successful concert performances, culminating in the recording of Vision.
Hamilton is also in demand as a composer and arranger for other genres, and has written music for companies as diverse as Nokia, Odgers Berndston and BNP Paribas. www.timothyhamilton.co.uk
