  Paul Dutton    (b. 21 Oktober 1956) Boy Soprano Soloist 
Print Friendly Page 
Paul Dutton Paul Dutton was 14 when making 'Paul Sings Vol 2' and at that time was Head Chorister of Leeds Parish Church Choir. A Leeds boy and a pupil of Leeds Grammar School, he has been a member of Leeds Parish Church Choir for six years, where he has contributed many hundreds of solos; by his recordings and recital tours with the choir he has achieved national recognition.

Paul's solo recitals have taken him to many parts of the country and he has also been engaged as a soloist in oratorio performances, most notable being Handel's "Messiah" at the Tivoli Gardens Hall, Copenhagen. He has appeared on television, being the youngest artist ever to be seen onthe international programme, "The Good Old Days" and has also broadcast. His outstanding talents have prompted composers to write works for him, but it is in the recording field that he has particularly excelled, his recordings on the Abbey label roving extremely popular.

ó Sleeve Notes

Paul continues to work with Opera North and is a member of the Britten Singers. Recent solo performances include the Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 and Britten's St. Nicolas, with CD recordings of Stainer's Crucifixion and Mozart's Mass in D. Future engagements include Bach's Mass in B minor and St John Passion, Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle and Mozart's Requiem Mass.

Paul is now Director of Music at Gateways School, Harewood, the choirmaster at St Mark's Church, Harrogate, and he continues to sing as a semi-professional. His son, William, was named BBC Chorister of the Year in 2006.
