Short Bio

Heidi Breyer is an award-winning contemporary classical composer, educated in London, UK at Trinity College of Music. Having released 5 prior albums, her 6th release reveals yet another dimension through her modern romantic treatment of the traditional Latin Requiem Mass. 

Breyer composed the work over a period of a decade while releasing her other collections and in 2020 despite the pandemic, undertook the complexities of recording the large-scale work one musician at a time. Every vocal and instrumental line was recorded remotely under the direction of a production team headed up by Grammy Winning Producer-Engineer Corin Nelsen and Grammy Winner Eugene Friesen. They worked meticulously for a year to realize Breyer’s vision. The result is a stunning piece of immersive listening which Heidi believes is a much needed salve, aimed to sooth and revive during these tumultuous times.

Heidi lives with her husband, pre-eminent realist oil-painter Alexander Volkov, their golden retriever, Percy and they have 5 grown children.
