William Missin (Counter-tenor)

Born: England

The English counter-tenor, William Missin, studied at New College Oxford and the Royal College of Music.

William Missin's repertoire encompasses everything from the renaissance to the contemporary. He is a regular member of groups such as Monteverdi Choir, The Clerks Group, Gabrieli Consort and the Tallis Scholars, and he has sung as a soloist with The English Concert, The Sixteen and The King’s Consort as well as with choirs and orchestras throughout Britain.

This year (2004) William Missin has performed Purcell Odes for le Concert d'Astree in Paris, George Frideric Handel's Dixit Dominus for the Orlando Chamber Choir and J.S. Bach's Christmas Oratorio (BWV 248) for Whitehall Choir both in St. John's Smith Square, and Messiah for Birmingham Bach Choir, Hereford Choral Society and Lichfield Cathedral Chamber Choir.

Operas have included Gluck's Orfeo (Finchcocks Festival), Vinao's Rashomon (Vocem Electric Voice Theatre), Benjamin Britten's Midsummer Night's Dream (Anglia Opera), and Freyner's Syrius on Earth (Almeida Opera).

Without doubt the highlight of his career has been to get his name and picture in Hello! for playing a castrato opera star in an 18th-century comedy for the RSC.
