Henry began his career as a chorister in the choir of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford subsequently winning a music scholarship to Uppingham School where he began studies with Susan Waters. He later returned to Christ Church as a Lay Clerk whilst studying music at university.
Henry has performed a number of roles in new works including the title role in Samuel Hogarth’s David and Goliath, soloist in David Owen Norris’ oratorio Prayerbook at the Festival of English Music in Dorchester Abbey and songs written for him by the composer Simon Whalley.
Henry is in increasing demand as an oratorio soloist, having appeared with a number of choirs and orchestras including The National Orchestra of Malta, regularly performing works including Bach’s Passions, Handel’s Messiah and recently a number of Bach’s solo Cantatas. Opera roles include Oberon in Britten’s Midsummer Night’s Dream, Didymus in Handel’s Theodora and Cupid in Venus and Adonis by John Blow. Having worked with and alongside such distinguished artists as Sarah Walker, James Bowman, John Mark Ainsley and Iestyn Davies, Henry is fast establishing himself as one of the “foremost counter-tenors of his generation” (Oxford Times)
Frequent solo recital programs have included English Song of the 20th Century through to works by Couperin and a programme of German Baroque Masters. Having studied with David Lowe (Royal Academy of Music), Henry has moved to The Netherlands to study with Jill Feldman, Michael Chance and Peter Kooij at the Koninklijk Conservatorium in Den Haag.
