Enelar Music features original compositions and arrangements by Norman Richardson, mainly for mixed voice choirs and vocal ensembles.
Norman Richardson was born in England and moved to Northern Ireland in the early 1970s to continue his career in education. Since school and college days he has been involved in various forms of music-making: as a singer on stage, on the concert platform and in choirs; as a teacher working with school and college choirs and ensembles; as a choral director; and as a composer and arranger. In 1974 he founded the Corrymeela Singers, which he directed until 1985 and for which he wrote a great deal of original music. He has continued to work in various capacities with a range of other choral groups and since 2014 he has been Musical Director of the Counterpoint Choir, based in Lurgan, County Armagh.
