Why I sing

David Parker | Bass Emeritus
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.

“... the traditional Buddhist text the Heart Sutra, with the Providence Singers. This piece ends in a glorious burst of musical joy”
