From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Anthony Way (born December 14, 1982) was a junior choirister at London's St. Paul's Cathedral in the mid 1990's when, at the age of eleven, he gained notoriety for his portrayal of Henry Ashworth in the BBC mini-series The Choir as a choirboy whose voice saved a cathedral from having to close its doors. The series, comprising five one-hour episodes, has since aired on America's ABC Television Network.

Anthony Way's is the prominent voice on The Choir soundtrack, both in solo and backed by the Gloucester Cathedral Choir and the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra. The recording sold over 250,000 copies, and its success prompted the release of more solo albums by Anthony Way, including 1995's "The Choirboy," an amalgamation of classic and contemporary songs which scarcely registered on the UK classical charts. In the summer of 1996, Way recorded "The Choirboy's Christmas," released the following winter. 1997 saw Way moved to the Choir of Uppingham School, during which time he continued to be in demand for performances and released his "Wings of a Dove."

In 1998, as maturity took its toll on his signature treble voice, Decca Records released "The Best of Anthony Way." He has since starred in 2000's film version of Tom's Midnight Garden.

His father worked as a prison officer at Wormwood Scrubs (HM Prison), and it was the prison chaplain (the Rev. Ray Guymer), who, in 1990, suggested to Mr Way that Anthony should go for a voice trial at St Paul's Cathedral.

Anthony continues to be active in music, working on many projects.
