Yvonne Eddy (soprano)

YvonneEddyPic3An exiled Geordie, Yvonne Eddy studied music at the University of Manchester then followed the specialist postgraduate Medieval and Renaissance course at the Schola Cantorum in Basel, Switzerland. She is now a freelance singer based in London, where she sings in several professional church choirs and ensembles including Philharmonia Voices, Retrospect Ensemble, RSVP Voices and Sarum Voices. Yvonne directs her own medieval vocal trio Levedy and sings with the medieval ensembles Le Basile, Mediva and The Telling.

Yvonne seems to be carving out a niche as a nun spanning several centuries. She has performed in Hildegard of Bingen’s 12th century liturgical drama Ordo Virtutum with Vox Animae at several international early music festivals including BREMF; she also explores the repertoire of 17th century Italian convents with Musica Secreta and appears as a singing nun in the hit BBC1 drama Call The Midwife.
