Notes & Reviews:

Freddy de Rivaz was born in St. Albans, England in 1991. His musical talents were evident at an early age on the drums where his remarkable sense of rhythm and contrast livened up many occasions. Freddy also had a good voice and in 1999 became a chorister at the Cathedral and Abbey Church of St. Albans under Andrew Lucas. Early on, Freddy's innate musicality shone through and he could be relied upon to sing solos exquisitely the first time; with a maturity beyond his years. In 2004 he was selected out of 25,000 applicants to perform in Rachel Portman's opera The Little Prince, shown on BBC2. In choosing songs for this recording, he has selected music with a wide range of appeal that gives him the opportunity to make the songs his own. Boy's voices do not last forever and it is this unique temporal quality that is captured so well in these songs with Freddy's voice at its peak. He ended his treble career a few months after these recordings were made with a stunning unaccompanied solo of Away in a Manger, each note of which could be heard clearly throughout the Abbey by the 2,000 members of the Christmas congregation.
