The English bass, Jonathan Pacey, started his singing life as a chorister in Winchester Cathedral Choir. After Winchester, he gained a music scholarship to Charterhouse, where he was head of the school choir. He then took a gap year which he spent as a choral scholar at Hereford Cathedral. During his time there he took part in The Three Choirs' Festival, as well as regular engagements with the other scholars outside the choir stalls. Having attended the Eton Choral courses three times, he gained a place in the Rodolfus Choir and performed the solo in Cornelius' Three Kings on BBC Radio 3 live during the Epiphany Sequence. He later read music at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he was a choral scholar under Stephen Layton graduatioin in 2015.
As a soloist, Jonathan Pacey has performed J.S. Bach's Christmas Oratorio (BWV 248) in St John's, Leatherhead, and the UK premiere of an operetta by Erics Ešenvalds. He also sang solos in J.S. Bach's St John Passion (BWV 245), and W.A. Mozart's Requiem. He also sings regularly with the Trinity College Music Society, which he also conducts occasionally. He was a founding member of The Gesualdo Six (March 2014-September 2015) and is now a member of VOCES8 (since September 2015) and Mousai Singers. He still regularly sings with the Lay Clerks at Winchester Cathedral, amongst his commitments.
