Why I sing

David Parker | Bass
I attended a private secondary school at which the major all-school events of the year were Christmas Vespers and a spring concert of Sacred Music. The first time I heard choirs warming up for the latter I was blown away by their Vivaldi Gloria. I’ll never forget the strength of the impression that made on me. I’ve been singing ever since.
