He is an English countertenor who attended Kings College
Cambridge and received a law degree.
He was a freelance professional singer and became a member of the
King’s Singers in 1968 and was with them when they gave their London debut. Later that year a brain tumour was discovered and he had a lengthy stay in
hospital which prevented him pursuing his career further. Once he had returned home and still
on a walking frame, he occasionally sang with the Winchester Cathedral Choir
and then joined the Cathedral Choir in Portsmouth.
