Gabriel Crouch was born on 19 September 1973. Musically inclined since the age of eight, he joined the choir of Westminster Abbey. He became the Head Chorister of that choir and even had a solo at the wedding of HRH Prince Andrew and Miss Sarah Ferguson.
From 1996 to 2004, he held the second baritone position in the King’s Singers, in a period that included their Grammy nomination for Best Classical Crossover Album in 2001. Formerly the director of the DePauw University Choral Ensembles, he currently is a senior lecturer at Princeton University and directs the Princeton Glee Club and Chamber Choir and the early music ensemble Gallicantus. He has recorded and produced numerous records for many major labels, most notably BMI and Hyperion. In January 2008, the Gabrieli Choir’s CD The Road to Paradise, which Crouch produced, was nominated for ‘Best Choral Recording’ in the BBC Music Awards.
