1. Ipswich School Chapel Choir Recording Te Deum Laudamus 1992
This recording was made in St Mary Le Tower Church, Ipswich on 21st and 22nd of October 1992. I don’t own the rights to this music although I am credited on it as a tenor. It was good experience to sing on a recording when I was that young at 14 that's why I've included it. Mr Dore's friends from Oxford recorded us that had their own record company.
It has been digitalised using a Walkman Mp3encoding device from the original audio cassette I was given by Bethany Records. I also took the liberty of producing them with my home studio Logic Pro X and various plugins.
This was my first recording on which I'm rarely credited as a tenor with some quite famous young names under Oxford organ scholar William Dore. I have now sung all four parts as a chorister.
2. Eton Choral Courses with Ralph Allwood 1995 & 1996
Recording for BBC World Service Radio at Eton College Chapel 1995 with Ralph Allwood MBE
This is the recording of Eton Choral Course 1 1995 as shown above indeed, all 7 numbers featuring me as a countertenor. Yes! I real gem of a career highlight. I have been broadcast in all 5 continents on the BBC world service over 2 programmes called Death & Judgement on the In Praise of God programme on the 3rd and the 10 December 1995. The recording was made on Tuesday July 18th 1995 as above. This was for the whole thing in just one session with a week's rehearsals from scratch. Ralph liked to work that fast to train us for life as a choral scholar at Cambridge or Oxford where music was sight read and learned that fast for daily or weekly services depending on college. Because I won the competition at school in singing I was in the hunt for one at the time.
