He now lives in a partly-restored old farmhouse in Speen, Buckinghamshire and somehow juggles his vital role as a father of four with busy careers as a barrister and a semi-professional musician. He is devoted to conducting and organising music camps at Pigotts, and is the musical director of The Elysian Singers of London, a leading chamber choir with whom he has made frequent appearances on radio and television, and made a number of acclaimed commercial recordings, the Trinity Camerata and the Craswall Players.  He has also worked with Oxford Sinfonia, Orchestra of the City, Kew Sinfonia, Crendon Chamber Orchestra, Oxford Philomusica, ENO Baylis and Garsington Opera.
