Steven joined Gothic Voices more than twenty years ago after meeting former member John Nixon as a colleague in the choir of Westminster Abbey in London. Gothic Voices introduced him to the delights of ensemble singing and the beauty and variety of medieval music.
He has sung regularly with many other groups including The Tallis Scholars, The Cardinall’s Musick, The Sixteen and the Gabrieli Consort, but is perhaps best known for his sixteen years in The Hilliard Ensemble, who have recently retired. With them he gained extensive experience in contemporary music and performed pieces written for the group by Arvo Pärt, James Macmillan, Wolfgang Rihm, Heinz Holliger, Erki Sven-Tüür, Alexander Raskatov, Gavin Bryars and many more. Steven is passionate about both early and contemporary music and enjoys combining the two in concert.
Steven is married to oboist Rachel Harwood-White. He is a keen walker and an obsessive follower of sport of all kinds.
