Elin Manahan Thomas studied at Cambridge University before moving to the musical world and starting a busy career of performing, broadcasting and presenting. She released her début album, Eternal Light, in 2007 with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, and is the first singer ever to record Bach’s Alles mit Gott, a birthday ode written in 1713 and discovered in 2005. She first received great acclaim for her ‘Pie Jesu’ on Naxos’ award-winning recording of the Rutter Requiem, and won critical praise for her performance in Bach’s St Matthew Passion at the Thomaskirche in Leipzig, under Sir John Eliot Gardiner. She has performed on Radio 2's Friday Night is Music Night, in Classic FM’s fifteenth birthday concert, at Songs of Praise’s ‘The Big Sing’, and gave the World Première of Sir John Tavener’s Requiem in Liverpool Cathedral (also recorded for EMI). Elin was invited to perform in the Vatican on Easter Sunday, and appeared at the Edinburgh International Festival with the Royal Flanders Ballet. Recent performances include Handel Messiah in Bridgewater Hall with the Halle Orchestra and in the Konzertgebouw with Britten Sinfonia, and Bach Cantatas at the Lufthansa Festival on Radio 3. She has performed for many of the world's leading conductors, and performed in concert at the Wigmore Hall and Royal Albert Hall as well as in many other internationally renowned locations.Read Less
