Biography

Sasha Johnson Manning studied voice, cello, and piano at the Royal Academy of Music. She began composing at the age of seven and has written many works for voices, including 'The Manchester Carols', (which won the Jerusalem Award 2009 for its Christmas broadcast), and also 'Daughters of Jerusalem', for BBC Radio 4's Good Friday Liturgy, both with the British Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy

In 2012, the BBC commissioned Sasha to compose 'The People's Passion Mass' with words by Michael Symmons Roberts. This was a national event performed by choirs not only throughout the country but also in Europe, Africa and USA.

Sasha was the composer-in-residence for the famous St. Louis Chamber Chorus in Missouri for eight years, for whom she wrote numerous works including a Requiem which was broadcast on BBC Radio 3's 'The Choir'.

Singing has taken Sasha to many countries, and as a specialist in Early Music, she has a busy concert diary, but home is where she's happiest. She sings regularly for BBC Radio 4's Daily Service; with Partita, a vocal and instrumental ensemble with the Renaissance at its heart; and with her local church choir, St Mary's, Bowdon.
