"In a world where mutability is the one thing on which we can rely, certain names carry with them an aura of comforting constancy: Banks (Music Publications) is a treasured example in the world of music, and their Eboracum Choral Series continues to be a wonderfully reliable resource".

Philip Lawson

Between 1994 and 2012 Philip Lawson sung first baritone for The King's Singers and is now the group's principal arranger. Since replacing founder member Simon Carrington in 1993 he has given well over 1,000 concerts with the group, made many CD/DVD recordings and taken part in choral workshops and masterclasses worldwide.

Prior to joining The King's Singers Philip was Director of Music of a school in Salisbury, Wiltshire in the UK where he was in charge of two choirs for whom he wrote much music, and was also a baritone Lay Clerk in the choir of Salisbury Cathedral singing eight services a week. He also arranged music and played piano for a local dance band.

Before and during his time in Salisbury Philip did much freelance singing, both as soloist and with choirs such as The Sixteen, The BBC Singers, The Taverner Choir, St. Paul's Cathedral in London and Westminster Abbey. He had previously graduated from York University with a B.A. (Hons.) degree in Music, specialising in composition, choral conducting, singing.
