Biography

Alexander L’Estrange (b.1974) is a fresh and exciting voice in choral music. With roots in the British choral tradition and a successful international career as a jazz musician and arranger, Alexander has been described by composer and broadcaster Howard Goodall as ‘the ideal 21st-century musician’, an accolade acknowledging not just his outstanding musicianship but also his huge versatility. His original compositions include Lute-Book Lullaby, On Eagles’ Wings, Prayers for Peace, Love’s Philosophy and Zimbe!, a 40-minute, African-inspired cantata for SATB chorus, children’s choir and jazz quintet, commissioned by Dorking Choral Society and premiered in November 2008 and which brought together performers young and old from across the local community.
