http://www.boysoloist.com/artist.asp?... Peter Robert Auty received his musical training in the Choir of St. Paul's Cathedral, London, which he joined shortly after his 8th birthday. Before he left, aged 13½, he had become Senior Chorister and sang in many special services. He made a number of recordings with the Cathedral Choir, including the gold-winning LP "Rejoice" which was later released on CD. He was one of the lead singers on the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra's recording of greatest hits of the pop group "Police". This LP was entitled "Arrested" and Peter's contribution, "Walking on the Moon" was later released as a single. His best known solo performance, however, was undoubtedly in 1982 when he recorded "Walking in the Air" for Howard Blake's soundtrack to The Snowman, a highly successful animated film directed by Dianne Jackson and based on the book by Raymond Briggs. Peter was invited to sing the role at the Barbican Theatre with Bernard Cribbins and an LP was made as well as a single of Peter's song.
