Sebastian Johnson

Born in Norwich in 1997, Sebastian Johnson has followed the complementary pursuits of singer and composer, of choral music especially, already with a substantial list of achievements in both, and with a keen interest too in editing and typesetting. In addition to instrumental scores ranging from works for piano to large orchestra, he has composed a variety of pieces for voices. There are settings of Christina Rossetti and of the eighteenth-century soldier–poet Thomas Osbert Mordaunt, besides a corpus of carols exploring traditional texts.

Sebastian studied composition at King’s College London under Silvina Milstein and Edward Nesbit, and sang in the Chapel Choir. He was also a bass scholar on the Genesis Sixteen programme, and has sung with other vocal groups including The English Concert, Fulham Camerata, Norwich Cathedral Choir and The Strand Consort, ensembles which, with The London Chamber Orchestra and Lontano, have also performed his work. Sebastian’s Norwich Service for SATB and organ, winner of the 2022 Lord Mayor’s Composition Prize, will be heard as part of Choral Evensong on Tuesday 16 May at the 2023 London Festival of Contemporary Church Music, sung by the Choir of St Michael’s, Cornhill, conducted by Jonathan Rennert.
