Steven Harrold (Tebor)

Born: England

The English tenor, Steven Harrold, was accepted to the choir of St. Paul when he was 8 years old. With this choir he sand at the Royal Wedding of Charles and Diana and visited the famous Abbey Road Studios to sing on a pop single, 'We all stand together' with Paul McCartney and the King’s Singers. He won a choral scholarship to St John's College, Cambridge where he studied for an economics degree in his spare time. After graduating he sang for a year at St Albans Abbey choir, before moving to Westminster Abbey. It was there that he met his fellow Gothic Voice, Leigh Nixon. St Albans is still his home (and coincidentally also home to Rogers Covey-Crump, his predecessor in Gothic Voices).

Steven Harrold is a high tenor, which has been very useful career-wise, since this kind of voice is relatively rare. Over the years he has sung with most of the early music ensembles including The Tallis Scholars (Director: Peter Phillips), Gabrieli Consort, Taverner Consort, Clerk's Group, The Sixteen and Collegium Vocale Gent, but it was Chris Page who introduced him to the beauty of medieval music. Besides Gothic Voices, he still sings regularly for The Cardinall's Musick, but much of his time is now spent with The Hilliard Ensemble. They perform a great deal of contemporary music, most recently a piece by the American composer Stephen Hartke, written for them together with Lorin Maazel and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.
