*Christmas Carol* in a contemporary arrangement. Includes composer biography.

David Dubery was born in 1948 in Durban, South Africa, where he studied piano from the age of five. In 1961, his family returned to England to live in Manchester, where his parents believed that his precocious talent would have more opportunity to develop. He was accepted as a junior student at the Northern School of Music. His flair for composition, an interest he pursued rom the age of twelve, began to attract attention, and after winning the Junior Composition prize in 1965, and with the encouragement of the Principal, Ida Carroll, he was awarded a course of composition lessons with Dorothy Pilling. 

In 1967 he became an undergraduate, studying piano with Kendall Taylor, piano accompaniment, voice and opera studies. In 1970 he was awarded a Hesse Scholarship at Aldeburgh. 

For the past Thirty years he has enjoyed a career as a pianist, accompanist, composer, vocal coach and teacher of both piano and voice. He has worked with international singers and instrumentalists as well as stars of stage, screen and television, and has made several recordings for BBC radio and television,. As well as composing and arranging several musicals, he has acted as vocal tutor and coach to cast members from over 25 West End/national touring productions. 

his serious compositions include, as well as a great number of solo and choral sings, a string quartet (Cuarteto Iberico), a Sonata and a Sonatina for oboe and piano, a Sonatina for recorder and piano, Three Songs to Poems by Robert Graves, for medium voice, recorder and piano, Mrs Harris in Paris, for recorder and piano (or strings), Pipe Pieces for solo recorder, and several orchestral tone-poems inspired by his love of Italy.
