I’ve been singing for pretty-much my whole life.
As a child I was a boy treble in my local church choir in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire. I was also an active member of RSCM Northern Cathedral Singers; singing in almost all of northern England’s cathedrals, as well as attending residential singing weeks in Canterbury, York, Worcester, and Lincoln.
I continued my love of singing, and particularly of church music, into adulthood singing as a tenor with the choir of Old Saint Paul’s, Edinburgh for around 12 years. I also performed with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra Chorus, Edinburgh Symphony Baroque, Scottish Festival Singers, St Andrew Camerata, and performed as an occasional soloist around Edinburgh and deputy in the choir of St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral, Edinburgh.
From 2007 until 2015 I was a Lay Vicar Choral in the choir of Christ Church Cathedral Dublin. I also sang with the Mornington Singers for a number of years. And, in addition to continued occasional deputy duties in Dublin’s two Anglican cathedrals of Christ Church and St Patrick’s, I am now a member of the choir of St Ann’s Dawson Street.
I have appeared on the BBC TV Songs of Praise twice, have been on RTE television Service on Sunday, as well as numerous broadcasts of BBC Radio 3 Choral Evensong. I have also sung to sell-out audiences in Edinburgh’s Usher Hall and Festival Theatre – appearing on stage with Paul Nicholas and Jason Donovan. In Dublin I sang in the choir supporting acclaimed opera singer Lesley Garrett.
In October 2017 I was privileged to be selected to sing with the Tallis Scholars in Dublin’s National Concert Hall in a performance of the Thomas Tallis 40-part work Spem in alium.
