Grace Davidson learned the piano and the violin but it was singing that she loved best and which won her a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music, where she won the Early Music prize. Since then she has worked as a soloist with leading Baroque ensembles, under the batons of Sir John Eliot Gardner, Paul McCreesh, Philippe Herreweghe and Harry Christophers. Her discography includes a decade of recordings with The Sixteen, many of which feature her as soloist. Grace’s purity of tone has attracted many of the leading contemporary composers to write for her, most notably Max Richter, who chose her as the solo singer for many of his works, such as ‘Sleep’. This piece – lasting all night - has now been performed all over the world, including a performance in 2019 on the Great Wall of China. Recent solo recording releases are Vivaldi & Handel, a disc of sacred solo cantatas with the Academy of Ancient Music and John Dowland: First Booke of Songes Or Ayres with lutenist David Miller.
