Robin joined the group in January 2001. He has sung his whole life, first as a chorister at Canterbury Cathedral, then as a ‘light-calibre’ baritone before biting the bullet and becoming a countertenor at the age of seventeen. A year later he was offered a choral scholarship to King’s College, Cambridge, singing every day in the chapel. He studied Theology, and was the only undergraduate to have a credit system set up in the library to pay fines on his overdue books! Despite gaining a very average degree, the musical life at Cambridge kept him busy. Singing with the college’s acappella group was part of that life, which came full-circle on joining the King’s Singers. Before joining up, he sang all over Europe, America and Asia, first as a choir member of various groups, including his own six-man outfit called the Acappellafellas, and then as a soloist in concerts and opera for whoever would have him! When he is at home in London he likes nothing better than spending time with his wife Christina and two sons, Henry and Magnus, showing new tricks he has learnt to dog Rosie, and indulging in cooking, walking and changing nappies. He also insists in going through the joys and agonies of supporting a second division football club, Reading.
