I Sing the Birth New York Polyphony

New York Polyphony is rapidly gaining a reputation as one of the finest classical vocal ensembles of a new generation. Fusing elegant vocalism with expert ensemble singing, the four men deliver dynamic, historically informed performances in a range of styles. From the simplicity of plainchant to the dense chromaticism of contemporary works, the New York Polyphony sound is strong, unified and distinctive.

The members of New York Polyphony maintain active performing lives, each bringing a diversity of experience to his craft. The alto Geoffrey Williams is in growing demand as an early music specialist throughout the United States, performing regularly with groups such as Vox Vocal Ensemble, St Thomas Choir of Men and Boys, and Early Music New York. The tenor Geoffrey Silver, a native of the United Kingdom, began his musical career as a Chorister of Westminster Abbey and later sang at Trinity and St John's Colleges in Cambridge. The baritone Scott Dispensa, a graduate of The Juilliard School, has performed extensively as a soloist and is equally at home in classical music and contemporary musical theatre. The bass-baritone Craig Phillips enjoys a successful operatic solo career, performing with companies throughout the United States, including New York City Opera, Glimmerglass Opera and Florida Grand Opera.

Their debut CD, I Sing the Birth, was released internationally on Avie Records in September 2007. It embraces repertoire from the Middle Ages to the present, the programme unified by the theme of Christmas.
