Antony Pitts

(1969 - )


‘One of the things that makes the sacred a cappella work of Antony Pitts (born 1969) stand out from that of the many excellent emerging choral composers of his generation is his fearless defiance of harmonic and melodic conventions; just when you think he's heading for an easy landing, he veers off into unexpected, exhilaratingly wild territory... Pitts is a composer to watch out for: these remarkably assured and compelling works should be of strong interest to any fan of contemporary choral music.’

‘Antony Pitts, a composer not yet 40 years of age, has rapidly crafted a place for himself as one of Britain's more enterprising writers of choral music...’
International Record Review

‘...a unique, strong, and, above all, spiritual voice seems to speak through.’
