    The Sixteen There are lots The one that comes most immediately to mind is Scarlatti s wonderful Stabat Mater It s a piece I didn t know before I joined The Sixteen and it s now one of my all time favourites What has been the most challenging piece of music you have ever sung For notes I d have to go with Poulenc s Figure humaine or Messiaen s Cinq Rechants In terms of a workout you d look no further than Bach s B minor Mass Does anyone in the choir have any annoying or unusual habits I am sure we all have plenty of annoying habits People would no doubt tell you I ask far too many questions in rehearsals I just can t help myself Do you have a party trick and if so what is it Quite a few that involve making stupid noises And if you get me drunk enough I play a mean air guitar Who were you or would you be nervous to meet I am really lucky to have met lots of important and glamorous people including royalty of various descriptions I like to think I am down to earth enough not to let it faze me What do you think you would be doing if you weren t a singer I d probably be something prosaic like an accountant There are definitely days where I long for a nine to five job What would your ultimate desert island disc be Well I d certainly take some Bach but it might also be between ELO Paul Simon and Pink Floyd I have pretty eclectic tastes What would you eat for your last supper Just a small bowl of quinoa JUST KIDDING Eggs Benedict and Key Lime Pie And the obligatory question
