Ernest Lough.

It never occurred to me to search Youtube for recording of him, the World's Most Famous Chorister. Well, I found them. And yes, he's actually got a fine, clear and pure voice, evidenced by This recording. Of course, they also have a recording of The Most Famous Song Ever Sung By A Chorister, Mendelssohn's Hear My Prayer, But this is from late in his career, and you can tell because the timbre of his voice is changed. Shame that he became a baritone. He would have a made a wonderful countertenor,but I guess you can choose everything.
