Bill Burden

Bill has earned an outstanding reputation in a wide-ranging repertoire throughout Europe and North America. He has performed in leading opera houses, and his recordings include Barber’s Vanessa with the BBC Symphony Orchestra (Chandos) and Musique adorable: The Songs of Emmanuel Chabrier (Hyperion). He has also been a soloist for The First Church of Christ, Scientist and for many branch churches over the years. He serves on the faculty of the Mannes School of Music and The Julliard School.

Grace, humanity and love glow through all Bill’s work. While performing with the San Francisco Opera recently, he made time to record several hymns and Christmas carols for us. His enthusiasm for the healing purpose of hymnstream speaks volumes about the motivation of his life.
