Chris Dee Singers – Carollers & Choirs | UK

Chris Dee Singers


The Chris Dee Singers is a bespoke group run by its Musical Director Christopher Dee. The singers are individually chosen to suit to style of music required by the client from a database of 500 of the top session singers in the country. They perform in every style from Grand Opera through Classical Music to Musical Theatre and Pop.

Recordings include: The Opera Babes album for Sony UK; Man Of La Mancha for TER; Nicky Spence album for Universal Music, as well as recordings for the West End productions of Sinatra, Porgy & Bess, Nelson, The Kitchen and Napoleon. Television work includes: The Victoria Wood Christmas Show; Saturday Night Armistice; and Never Mind The Buzzcocks Christmas Special.

As they are not limited to the same people, providing a group of singers is never a problem. The group can be as large as you like, but while anything smaller than a quintet is perfectly good for singing carols, it does limit the repertoire available. The group can perform accappella or with piano / keyboard accompaniment. Normally they would perform in Evening Dress, although they can perform in Victorian costume etc. (However, costumes will need to be hired).

The Classical singers used for carolling regularly sing in the top churches and cathedrals in London including Westminster Cathedral, St. Pauls, and Westminster Abbey. As such many of the singers have sung at Royal Weddings as well as the funerals of Princess Diana and the Queen Mother.

Since their inception in 1999 the Chris Dee Singers has been accredited as “an approved group for recording purposes” by; Angel Records, Sony UK, EMI, First Night Records, Chandos, Decca, Deutshe Grammophon, TER Records, Sony International, Naxos, and Universal Music.

– The Independent
