BIOGRAPHY

 

Miranda Ostler sings regularly with ensembles including the Oxford Bach Soloists (for whom she is a choral scholar and frequent soloist), the London Choral Sinfonia, Philharmonia Voices, and Icosa. Miranda also deputises at numerous churches around London, including All Saints’ Margaret Street, St Peter’s Eaton Square, St Stephen’s Gloucester Road, and St George's Hanover Square. She is a founding member of two new vocal ensembles: The Rupa Ensemble and Oread Chamber Choir. She has toured Mexico and the UK with Schola Cantorum of Oxford, and has recorded for film and television with the Eric Whitacre Singers at Abbey Road, Air, and Angel Studios, London.  She graduated from University College, Durham in 2015, where she was a choral scholar.

Recent solo work includes Bach St John Passion and numerous cantatas for the Oxford Bach Soloists and Tom Hammond-Davies; Handel Dixit Dominus with The Iona Consort and Benedict Lewis-Smith; multiple performances of a one-voice-per-part Bach St Matthew Passion and Monteverdi Vespers for The Bishop’s Consort and David Stancliffe; Mozart Requiem and Handel Messiah for Willington Festival Chorus and Scott Inglis-Kidger; McDowall The Lord is Good with the English Chamber Singers and Martin Neary; and Purcell In Guilty Night for Musica Antica Rotherhithe and Oliver Doyle.

We were delighted to have Miranda sing so beautifully for us at the service. Everyone said how well and movingly she sang, drawing attention to the music and the feelings in it and not even remotely to herself. She’s a fine artist.
