Max Matthew is a member of the National Boys Choir of Scotland, the RSCM Northern Cathedral Singers and the ABCD Cambiata North West choir. He was chosen as a case study by Professor Martin Ashley for his book "Contemporary Choral Work with Boys". The study draws on the work of John Cooksey to chart the development of a young voice from age 10, just before the period Cooksey describes as "Full rich soprano like quality. Reaches its pinnacle of beauty, power and intensity at this time" to the full flowering of the pure treble voice at age 12 and its maturation into a deeper range at age 13. 19 tracks on the CD "Monday Afternoons" uniquely illustrate the changes in the life span of a boy treble.
Max has two cats, Missy and Alfie, who he adores and has talents in science and computing as well as music. His ambition is to go into medicine.

Max Matthew There are nineteen solo tracks, each recorded at a different age in the singer's lifespan as a treble. The first track is quite a naive, childish sound from a ten year old. The final track is an alto aria from the Messiah. The tracks are predominantly classical, but there are also folk songs, TV theme songs and popular ballads.
