After gaining diplomas in performance and teaching from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Lucinda developed a career working as both soloist and chorister for many of the most influential and creative directors of our time, such as Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Sir Roger Norrington, Sir Simon Rattle, Sir Neville Marriner, Gianandrea Noseda, Richard Hickox, Trevor Pinnock, Harry Christophers, Andrew Manze, Gustav Leonhardt, Sigiswald Kruijken, Rene Jacobs, Stephen Cleobury, David Hill and Fabio Biondi, amongst many, many others, with the majority of whom she has been lucky enough to travel extensively, performing and recording in some of the most celebrated venues in the world.

The principal choral groups with which she works include:
The Monteverdi Choir
The Sixteen
The Choir of the English Concert
The Choir of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment
The BBC Singers (ad hoc)
Collegium Musicum 90
The Schütz Choir
The Taverner Choir
London Voices
Europa Galante

Her clear lyric soprano voice has moved several composers to write pieces of music specifically for her, including three pieces by Peter Copley, and was the inspiration for the voice of Mary in James Ellis's Songs from Luke:The Nativity. Andrew Parnell also chose Lucinda to give the first performance of his Music Divine, a large work for chorus and orchestra with soprano and baritone soloists.
