About the Author

Andrew Carter was born in 1939 into a Leicestershire family of tower and handbell ringers. Following a music degree at the University of Leeds, he joined York Minster Choir, and was subsequently Director of Music at the Bar Convent Grammar School, where he achieved his first successes as a choir trainer. His wealth of experience of directing both mixed-voice and upper-voice choirs has given him a deep understanding of the voice, expressed by a lyricism and sense of drama underpinned by distinctive, often bitter-sweet harmonies. His vast collection of anthems and Christmas carols, together with a substantial number of large-scale choral works, have earned him a reputation as one of Britain's most respected contemporary choral composers.


'One of the most impressive settings of the Latin Mass for upper voices I have seen for some time ... Andrew Carter's Missa Brevis, written for the choir of Malsis School, is quite stunning. From the deep intensity of Kyrie eleison , through the vibrant rhythmical energy of the Gloria, and the ecstatic beauty of Benedictus to the sombre ground bass of Agnus Dei, this is indeed a most moving work, and a worthy addition to the repertoire of liturgical music ... All junior choir directors should buy a copy of this outstanding piece.' Church Music Quarterly
