Death of an English early music tenor

We have been informed of the death of Peter Hall, a tenor active on the early music scene who made at least eight commercial recordings. He had been in poor health for several years.

Peter’s funeral will be on Friday, November 10th at 3.30 at Amersham (Chilterns) Crematorium, which is on the A404 just outside Amersham towards High Wycombe.

  • Peter’s Passion Evangelists appearances, delivered from the St Paul’s Cathedral pulpit, were legendary. And take a listen to the St Paul’s Choir’s recording of Lotti’s Crucifixus to hear his unmistakeable sound soaring through.

  • He was a choral scholar at King’s College Cambridge in the mid-1960s along with other such luminaries as Simon Carrington, David Thomas, Humphrey Clucas, Charles Brett and Sebastian Forbes, with Simon Preston as organ scholar – and young Roy Goodman among the trebles. Great days, indeed!

  • So sad to hear of Peter’s death! Not that we were in touch recently, but way back in the 1960’s we sang in the same madrigal group, and then he took me to a Kings College May Ball in 1963! My memory of his voice is still vivid: he sang the B minor mass Benedictus at my. Sister’s wedding. So beautiful! Very fond memories, Marian Mead
