Nigel Perrin: RIP

We are sad to report the loss of another legend of our group. Nigel Perrin was our first countertenor from 1969-1978, and did so much in those early years to define the sound and character of the group with his beautiful singing. After leaving the group he continued to change many people's lives through music as a teacher and a conductor, always with his wit and good humour. Our thoughts are with Kate and all his family.
