Timothy Brown Biography (Wikipedia)
Timothy (Tim) Brown (born 9 December 1946) is an English choral conductor. He was a chorister at Westminster Abbey, and later an alto choral scholar at King's College, Cambridge, under the direction of Sir David Willcocks. He went on to become a lay clerk at New College, Oxford, and later as a schoolteacher for a number of years.
In 1979 he succeeded John Rutter as Director of Music at Clare College, Cambridge and Director of Choir of Clare College Cambridge. In his time at Clare he released several acclaimed recordings with the choir (largely on the Naxos label) by composers including Rutter, Vaughan Williams and Stainer.
In 1986 he re-founded the Cambridge University Chamber Choir, directing annual performances of all the major Bach and Handel oratorios. He later founded the London-based professional chamber choir, English Voices.
Many of his students have gone on to form successful careers in music, notably Norwich Cathedral organist David Dunnett and musician and plant-collector Jeremy Thurlow.
