Peter Davey was born in 1967. He won a Choral Scholarship to the Prebendal school in 1976 and was admitted as a Chorister at Chichester the following January. During his time as a Chorister he also studied the bassoon and piano at the Royal Academy of Music, having gained a scholarship to the Saturday school. He became a regular soloist at services in the cathedral and in 1981 was appointed Head Chorister.
A solo recording was recorded in July 1981 under the direction of the then Organist and Master of the Choristers, Alan Thurlow. This was followed by a tour of Michigan with the organist for the recording, Kenneth Sweetman. Peter also made several recordings and television appearances with the Cathedral Choir.
He left the Cathedral later in 1981 and continued his education at St Paul's boys' school where he continued to sing in concerts as treble and then as a baritone. He went on to study bassoon and organ at the Royal College of Music.
Although no longer involved full time in music, Peter continues to take engagements singing and playing organ when time allows.
Harry Mudd, executive producer of Abbey Records and the associated Alpha Label, made an enourmous impact with his standalone recordings of choirs and boy soprano soloists in particular. This recording includes highlights from some of these soloists on CD for the first time.
