After winning a choral scholarship to Clare College, Cambridge, Juliet followed another path, holding a series of senior financial positions in the City of London.
However, she maintained an active presence in singing, featuring as a soprano soloist with the Bach Choir in (inter alia) Sydney Opera House, Wellington Cathedral, the Royal Festival Hall and Frankfurt Cathedral and on two of their recordings.
Other solo recordings include “an angelic voice” on the soundtrack of the film Nostradamus and as the soprano soloist in Bliss’s Shield of Faith with the Collegiate Singers.
