Mark Templeton, born 1974, is an American choral composer, conductor, and countertenor. Templeton’s music has been described by the Boston Music Intelligencer as “charming and entertaining, playing with homophony and polyphony, and having a winning way with neo-romantic sweet dissonances.” Some of his music is published by Santa Barbara Music Publishing, and he has recently started to self-publish. His music for men’s voices, including “When I Hear Her I Have Wings,” has been performed across the world at various international festivals and ACDA conventions. His “Missa Brevis” has recently been featured in a doctoral dissertation by Florida State University. He teaches and resides with his wife, Becca, at West Nottingham Academy in Colora, Maryland, the oldest boarding school in the United States. He also enjoys coaching, playing, and watching soccer when he is not working. He is available for commission upon request.
