He has been recording and performing with Polyphony since its conception in 1988. He also serves as Music Director of the Holst Singers. In a recent Gramophone critics’ poll of the world’s 20 greatest choirs, Polyphony was voted second finest choir in the world, and The Choir of Trinity College Cambridge was ranked among the top five positions. Layton’s work has been honoured with two Gramophone Awards, the Diapason d’Or de l’Année, the Echo Klassik award, the Spanish CD compact award and the Limelight Recording of the Year, in Australia. Layton’s interpretations of Bach and Handel have been performed by orchestras ranging from the Academy of Ancient Music and the Australian Chamber Orchestra to the London Philharmonic and Philadelphia Orchestra.

Mr Layton formally served as Chief Conductor of the Netherlands Chamber Choir, Chief Guest Conductor of the Danish National Vocal Ensemble, Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of the City of London Sinfonia and Director of Music at the Temple Church in London.
