Ben sings the role of Jesus in Sir Arthur Sullivan's oratorio The Light of the World on the world première recording by Dutton Epoch. He rejoins John Andrews and the BBC Concert Orchestra in January to record Sullivan's opera Haddon Hall, and the title roles in two curtain raisers - Ernest Ford's Mr Jericho and François Cellier's Captain Billy.
"Ben McAteer makes a dignified and strong Jesus, always engaging by the sheer strength of his utterance." (Robert Hugill)
"Ben McAteer’s smoothly lyrical baritone sounds well, and, critically, he manages to evince obvious humanity." (Classical Source)
