I was employed as an Alto Lay Clerk for three years, requiring strong sight-reading and the ability to work efficiently in a small team within a very small time frame. The size of the cathedral also necessitated a clear and strong projection, especially with solo singing. While here, I also often played popular songs as a busker and recorded an album of original songs.
