Welcome

Welcome to my official website.

I feel very lucky to have a career spanning so many styles of music and which has been enriched by countless wonderful musicians and inspiring friends and colleagues. Have a look at the discography page to see some of the recordings that we've made together.

On the other pages you'll find details of my forthcoming performances for approximately the next 12 months, various video clips and press items, and I'll keep you up-to-date with CD releases and other news.

New Baroque recordings

My disc of Schubert songs with Joseph Middleton was almost universally well-received, and while we prepare for our next release next spring, it's lovely to announce the arrival of 3 new baroque recordings. Two very different Handel albums (see the video clips on the Media page), and the final disc of Bach Cantatas from Bach Collegium Japan.

“...Carolyn Sampson’s pure soprano cossets the words, savouring their expressive implications, relishing their shifts of rhythm and subtly sighing with bliss, yearning or heartache...”
