Rachel Elliott (Soprano)

Born: England

The English soprano, Rachel Elliott, studied piano at the Purcell School, before going to Selwyn College, Cambridge, to read music. She then spent two years on the postgraduate Early Music course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where her singing teacher was David Pollard.

Rachel Elliott's career has been divided between solo and ensemble singing. She has worked with English groups such as I Fagiolini, Concordia, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, The Academy of Ancient Music, New London Consort, and The Bach Players. She has also sung with the French ensembles, Les Arts Florissants and Il Seminario Musicale, and works regularly with the Spanish group Hippocampus.

Her recordings include lute songs by Campion with Nigel North, discs of music by Purcell, Charpentier and Rameau with New Chamber Opera, music for voice and viol consort by Gibbons with Concordia, as well as a disc of Antonio Vivaldi motets for solo soprano. Most recently she has recorded a recital of music by Monteverdi, Girolamo Frescobaldi, and Caccini for the Spanish label Arsis; and several Bach Cantatas with The Bach Players for Hyphen Press Music. She has recorded also for BBC radio.
