Dr Paul Gameson is an Associate Lecturer at the University of York, where he completed his PhD on sacred music in seventeenth-century France. His continuing research includes the dissemination of French music from this period in English manuscripts, and the social, political and musical influences on English sacred music during the English Civil War.
His editions have been published by York Early Music Press and have been used by groups including the Gabrieli Consort and Corona Coloniensis.
Paul founded The Ebor Singers initially to develop his own research in to English and French seventeenth-century repertoire, but in more recent years he has enjoyed collaborative projects with composers such as Kerry Andrew and Ambrose Field. As a choral director he has given choral workshops in the UK and abroad.
He has a unique insight in to William Lawes’ ‘York’ psalms, for as well as his research and performing and recording them with The Ebor Singers, he has sung in York Minster Choir – for whom they were quite possibly composed – since 1995.
