David began his life on a wet August bank holiday Monday in 1962. His next significant day was Saturday, February 7th, 1970, when his parents gave him the choice of enjoying a football match at Southampton, or enduring the ‘Voice Trials’ for Winchester Cathedral Choir. Rather to his surprise now, he chose the ‘Voice Trials’ and even more surprising – was given a place as a chorister in the choir. At thirteen, he went to Winchester College where, rather later than he would have liked, his voice made the short drop to countertenor. After three years as a choral scholar at New College, Oxford, and armed with a geography degree, he began his career as a freelance singer before joining the King’s Singers in 1990. When he is not travelling with the group, he tries to spend as much time as possible with his hard-working wife, Sarah. They look forward to having enough time to sail their boat, and to the completion of the seemingly never-ending renovation of their home.
