Ancient Groove Music is run by Ben Byram-Wigfield, a singer and musicologist based in London. He has been awarded a PhD by the Open University for his thesis on the sacred music of Antonio Lotti. He was a chorister at King's College, Cambridge, a choral scholar at St. Mary's Episcopal Cathedral, Edinburgh, and a Lay Clerk at Gloucester Cathedral.
Watch this video about his collaboration with The Sixteen on a new edition of Allegri's Miserere.
He is also the author of In Search of Failure, a humorous self-help book (New Holland 2004, ISBN 978-1843308560). Now rather rare!
Another publication is Finale Music App Basics, in the Everyday Guides Mades Easy series by Flame Tree Publishing. (2015, ISBN 9781783613953).
