Rebecca Dale is a British composer of screen and concert music.
Born in 1985, Dale started composing from a very young age, completing her first full musical at age 10 and piano concerto at 15. After school music scholarships, she studied at Oxford University (New College) and the National Film and Television School, from which she holds an MA with distinction in Composing for Film & Television. Her work first came to public attention when BBC Radio 3 premiered her choral symphony ‘When Music Sounds’ in 2014. Her 2015 debut self-release for choir and orchestra, ‘I’ll Sing’, rose through the classical charts and was Classic FM’s Choral Classic of the Week. Her next release, ‘Soay’, spent five weeks at Classical No. 1 and was named Classic FM 2016 Album of the Year. In 2017, Dale won a coveted place on the Sundance Composer Lab.
Most recently, her track ‘Winter’, commissioned by bestselling vocal group Voces8 for their album of the same name, was described by Gramophone Magazine as a “masterpiece”. A follow up album is due for release this year. Dale also recently composed original music for the BBC Christmas drama series, Little Women.
Dale has been involved in projects for 20th Century Fox, Disney, Working Title, The Weinstein Co., and the BBC. Her score for Crossing The Line was nominated for best original music in feature film at the 2017 international Music & Sound Awards. She has recorded and conducted orchestral works at Abbey Road, Air Studios, George Lucas’s Skywalker Ranch and Fox Studios, Hollywood, and has written for numerous artists and ensembles including the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, the Scottish Festival Orchestra, and the London Mozart Players. In 2022 she reached no.1 in the Classical Christmas charts, in her collaboration with St. Martin’s Voices.
