Educated at King's College Cambridge, James Gilchrist began his working life as a doctor, turning to a full-time career in music in 1996. Opera credits include Acis, Peter Quint and the title-role in Albert Herring (recorded for Chandos under the late Richard Hickox), whilst his oratorio repertoire covers the major works of Bach, Handel and Haydn. A prolific recitalist, he has won particular acclaim for his collaboration with the pianist Anna Tilbrook: their recordings together include discs of songs by Lennox Berkeley, Finzi and John Jeffreys as well as a 'lively, intelligent, sympathetic account' (The Times) of Die Schöne Müllerin in 2009.
