    so times and take it to thousands of people who might not otherwise have discovered it I hope the audiences enjoyed it as much as we did What has been the most challenging piece of music you have ever performed Recently Poulenc s Figure humaine A great discovery for me I adore Poulenc and most French music and plenty of tricky corners to keep me on my toes Does anyone in The Sixteen have any annoying or unusual habits Yes I won t say more than that though as I m sure I have my fair share Do you have a party trick and if so what is it Not really I ve never lived down having danced on a chair in Spain a few years ago some swear it was a table but it was definitely a chair but that s as close as I get Who were you or would you be nervous to meet I can t think of many to be honest I was a huge Take That fan in my youth and secretly still am so probably Gary Barlow What do you think you would be doing if you weren t a musician I d probably be an accountant dull but everyone needs one or a teacher Or still working in music related admin or management which is where I started What would your ultimate desert island disc be It would have to be Bach without a doubt but I d be hard pushed to choose between the Mass in B minor or one of the Passions I also love his oboe concerti I spent my GCSE revision period listening to Nicholas Daniels recording and they still have an amazing capacity to make me get my head down and get on with things Could I

    What has been the most challenging piece of music you have ever performed My first ever concert with the Sixteen sight reading Britten s Sacred and Profane Do you have a party trick and if so what is it Not really apart from singing very high only dogs can hear it though Who were you or would you be nervous to meet I was quite nervous when I met Renee Fleming There was no need she was lovely What do you think you would be doing if you weren t a musician Possibly a party wedding planner I love organising events and making sure everything looks nice What would your ultimate desert island disc be Renee Fleming singing Strauss s Four Last Songs What would you eat for your last supper Would have to be a roast dinner with apple crumble and custard Traditional And the obligatory question What football team do you support Well West Ham really but a bit of Arsenal by marriage Back to Meet the singers Home About The Ensemble Meet the singers Charlotte Mobbs About The Ensemble Harry Christophers Eamonn Dougan News and Reviews Current Vacancies Contact Us Support Have you been captivated by The

  • David Clegg | Meet the singers | The Sixteen
    Jephtha was a real treat but I think James Macmillan s Miserere has been the piece that moves me every time we perform it What has been the most challenging piece of music you have ever sung Actually the piece that comes to mind was not performed with The Sixteen it was the world premiere of György Kurtág s Songs of Despair and Sorrow which I did with the Monteverdi Choir at the Concertgebouw in Holland some years ago broadcast live on radio Totally terrifying Does anyone in the choir have any annoying or unusual habits God yes But let him without sin cast the first stone Do you have a party trick and if so what is it Staying too late is my usual party trick Who were you or would you be nervous to meet At one stage Harry Christophers Less so these days What do you think you would be doing if you weren t a singer I m tempted to say earning more money but having less fun I suspect I would have gone into journalism of some kind or other I always fancied being a children s author and illustrator but JK Rowling got there ahead of me and I can t draw What would your ultimate desert island disc be If I had to take just one piece to my desert island it would not be vocal played by Murray Perahia on the piano it would be the Aria from Bach s Goldberg Variations a perfect piece of music if ever there was one and a good one to contemplate my fate on this island But if I could take a selection to cover the entire panoply of life and to have things to sustain my interest perhaps some wonderful Sheppard or Victoria from

    particularly like it I now love it Messiah should never be performed by anyone else What has been the most challenging piece of music you have ever performed Not with The Sixteen but it was Berlioz s Romeo and Juliet I would love to have another go at it now as I think I might be less scared Do you have a party trick and if so what is it Sadly not although I beat my family hands down at flicking beer mats very surprising Who were you or would you be nervous to meet Anyone who is eminent in their field and gives off the aura of being so What would your ultimate desert island disc be Monteverdi S Vespers What would you eat for your last supper Devon Crab bought from the fish shop on the beach at Beer eaten in the sun on the beach there with my husband and daughter and washed down with a bottle of cold champagne Back to Meet the players Home About The Ensemble Meet the players Imogen Seth Smith About The Ensemble Harry Christophers Eamonn Dougan News and Reviews Current Vacancies Contact Us Home About Concerts Education Genesis Sixteen Shop Support

    piece you have fallen in love with since performing it with The Sixteen The challenge is NOT to fall out of love with Handel s Messiah and I have managed it It still has a huge amount to engage with and surprise after all this time What do you think you would be doing if you weren t a musician When I was little I wanted to be a scientist I think I have missed the boat now What would your ultimate desert island disc be Bach cantata pick a number almost any number What would you eat for your last supper Allotment beans and gooseberry fool And the obligatory question What football team do you support The correct answer is Arsenal isn t it Back to Meet the players Home About The Ensemble Meet the players Henrietta Wayne About The Ensemble Harry Christophers Eamonn Dougan News and Reviews Current Vacancies Contact Us Home About Concerts Education Genesis Sixteen Shop Support The Sixteen Ltd Reg No 1930741 The Sixteen Prods Ltd Reg No 4252277 Registered Office Quadrant House 10 Fleet Street London EC4Y 1AU Follow us on Facebook Read more Twitter Read more Youtube Read more Blogger Read more Contact
