Conductor and composer Ronald Corp, born in Wells, Somerset, England, and educated at Christ Church, Oxford, is music director of the New London Orchestra, the New London Children’s Choir, the London Chorus, and the Highgate Choral Society. A recognized authority on choral training and repertory, he is the author of The Choral Singer’s Companion, now in its third edition. Corp has written a number of large choral-orchestral works, as well as a symphony, piano concerto, and many smaller pieces for children’s voices. His first foray into writing Jewish music was his full-length cantata in Hebrew, Adonai eḥad, commissioned by the Highgate Choral Society and premiered by it in 2001 under the composer’s baton. Corp was awarded an OBE (Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) by Queen Elizabeth II in 2012 for services to music.
