Quentin's love of singing goes back to his time as a boy chorister at Rochester Cathedral.
As an adult he became a lay-clerk at Leeds Parish Church and subsequently a member of the BBC Northern Singers under Stephen Wilkinson;
he studied with Sybil Chambers, John Carol-Case, David Mason and Paul Wade. He is principal Bass soloist for the St Peter's Singers of Leeds,
where he has been fortunate to work with Dr Simon Lindley for over 25 years.
Now he performs a wide repertoire ranging from Bach and Handel to Mendelssohn, Rossini, Berlioz, Verdi, Elgar, Vaughan Williams, and Orff. In 2000, Quentin
was among the soloists in the Goldberg Ensemble's performance of the St John Passion, marking the 250th anniversary of JS Bach's death,
and he has appeared with the Manchester Camerata and with the English Symphony Orchestra under Dr Donald Hunt. Recent engagements include
Elgar's Dream of Gerontius, Mendelssohn's St Paul, Christopher Steel's Sinfonia Sacra, Carl Orff's Carmina Burana and Bach's St John Passion.
Future engagements include several Bach Cantata concerts and the St Matthew Passion, Handel's Messiah, Mozart's Requiem, Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle,
Dvorak's Stabat Mater and Vaughan William's Five Mystical Songs.
He has given a number of recitals of both operatic and English 20th Century Song repertoire, most recently at The Venue in Leeds, in conjunction with other artists such as
Simon Lindley, Darius Battiwalla, Jonathan Lilley, David Jones, Hazel Turner, Kathryn Woodruff and Joyce Tindsley.
