Rogers Covey-Crump, an English tenor (b. March 24, 1944 in St Albans, Hertfordshire), was a boy chorister at New College, Oxford and later a tenor lay-clerk at St Albans Abbey. While studying at the Royal College of Music he gained diplomas and a prize in organ playing. He graduated from London University as a Bachelor of Music. He might have made a professional career as an organist but his vocal activity soon overtook the keyboard and over many years he worked with a variety of early music ensembles - particularly with the late David Munrow's Early Music Consort of London, the Baccholian Singers, the Consort of Musicke, the Medieval Ensemble of London, Gothic Voices, and with the Landini, Deller and Taverner Consorts. He now spends much of the year as a member of the Hilliard Ensemble, a male voice quartet known globally not only for its concerts and recordings of Medieval and Renaissance repertoire but also for its acclaimed first recordings of the vocal works of the Estonian composer, Arvo Pärt.

A collaboration with the saxophonist, Jan Garbarek, has produced a unique fusion of styles in the highly acclaimed album Officium and its successor, Mnemosyne. 2010 saw the release of a third album: Officium Novum. Another ongoing project is a music theatre piece, I went to the house but did not enter, by the contemporary German composer and director, Heiner Goebbels. This has been staged all around Europe, in the USA and in South Korea. As a soloist Rogers has many recordings of Baroque repertoire to his name, in particular the ceremonial and the church music of Purcell with Robert King on Hyperion, and the Passion settings of Bach with Andrew Parrott, Stephen Cleobury and Roy Goodman.

His appearances over a solo career of forty years include the London promenade concerts and major venues in Britain, on the Continent and in North America, often as Evangelist in the Bach Passions. More recent recordings include a series with Café Mozart, a chamber ensemble based in Windsor and focussing on late 18thC song. His interest in the nature of vocal tuning and temperaments has resulted in ongoing lectures, choral workshops, the sleeve notes accompanying "Hilliard Live" and contributions to two books of essays published in 1992.
