Evidence of Prizewinning Potential in the Arts From the 1990s
Professional Interests & Hobbies in the Arts along with some life history and archiving
Whatever your musical needs I can write music for every occasion and make that score available in a veriety of formats. I am a vastly experienced choral singer with over 350 amatuer and professional performances under my belt for some of the best choral conductors in the world. I am a recording artist at choral level including for the BBC and Hyperion and briefly worked as a professional soloist in Germany.
I have a history of political activism dating back to 2003. My primary concern now is Pro-Eurofederalism. I am a hard remainer, but I've also done antiwar, antifascist and student strikes against tuiton fees in both England and in Germany
Eton Choral Courses with Ralph Allwood MBE 1995 & 1996
My finest musical achivement is 7 tracks for BBC World in 1995 with Ralph Allwood MBE as the Ipswich School singing cup winner and representative on Eton Choral Course 1 1995. Ralph is the former Choirmaster of Eton College and now Trinity Laban College London and was tutor to the famous Choirmaster Gareth Malone. Recorded for the In Praise of God Programmes, 'Death' and 'Judgement' broadcast on the 3rd and 10th of December 1995 and recorded that summer. Click on the Link for the full programme. This is Ubi Caritas by Maurice Dureflé. I also recorded 2 tracks for Hyperion the second most popular classical music Label of the 90s behind Deutsche Gramaphon as an extra in a congregational choir taken from Dovercourt Choral Society and Colchester Bach Choir on a Peter Holman CD called Vital Spark of Heavenly Flame recorded in St Mary's Stoke by Nayland in 1998 accompanied by pianist Timothy Roberts. My 7 professional countertenor appearances as a solo opera and oratorio specialist and the 2 gigs (Handel's Messiah and Sing Christmas 2016) for Aldeburgh Voices under Ben Parry, the Benjamin Britten Foundation House Choir at Snape Maltings in Suffolk, will always stick in my mind as the highlights of my singing career. You can read about it all by clicking on music and going to Singing. I'm fiercely proud of my little career in Classical Music and still want to improve on what I've done by becoming a professional player and composer in my middle age and passing the mantle of singing on to the young aside for maybe increasing my total number of pro performances from 7-50 just to prove that my 400 appearances weren't just for fun. I have sung at 10 Cathedrals and in 2 evensongs at Kings Cambridge and John's Cambridge in 1995 and 1996 including one performance for the great late Sir Stephen Cleobury 'Church music's only knight'!
