Richard Allain

Living in: England

Richard Allain's works encompass a wide range of styles, including music theatre, sacred choral music, song-writing and works for children. He has been commissioned to write music for BBC Radio 2, 3 and 4. He has worked with many of the country's leading choirs and musicians (including BBC Singers, King's College, Cambridge, St Paul's Cathedral, Commotio, The Bach Choir, etc). His music has appeared at the BBC Proms, and his work is regularly performed and broadcast within the UK and in countries throughout the world. Ubi Caritas has been a core item on Classic FM for nearly a decade. Cana's Guest was selected to form part of The Queen's Choir Book, a collection of contemporary choral music published to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. Choral music is at the heart of his output; he was, for many years, Composer in Association for the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain.

Deeply committed to music education, together with his brother Thomas, Allain has written several cantatas for young voices. One such collaboration, Jake and the Right Genie was commissioned by the Surrey Millennium Youth Festival. It has since been performed by over 10,000 school children and, in 2005, an entire Yorkshire village!
