Grayson 'Bill' Ives (b. 1948), informator (director of music) at the Magdalen College, Oxford. He is perhaps best known as a former member of The King’s Singers, with whom he worked for eight years. During that time he appeared on concert platforms all over the world, with a busy schedule on radio and television and in the recording studio. He left the group in 1985 in order to concentrate on a freelance career, mainly as a composer and arranger. Notable compositions include a setting of the Te Deum (1991), written for the enthronement on George Carey as Archbishop of Canterbury. In the same year he was appointed Organist, Informator Choristarum and Tutor in Music at Magdalen College, Oxford.
