James Gilchrist

James Gilchrist, tenor, began his working life as a doctor, turning to a full-time music career in 1996. His extensive concert repertoire has seen him perform in major concert halls throughout the world, with highlights including the role of Rev. Adams in Britten’s Peter Grimes with Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and Edward Gardner in London and Norway, Elijah with Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and Masaaki Suzuki, and Haydn’s Creation for a staged production with Garsington Opera and Ballet Rambert. The St John and St Matthew Passion feature prominently in his schedule, and he is celebrated as perhaps the finest Evangelist of his generation; as one review noted, ‘he hasn’t become a one-man Evangelist industry by chance’.
