Performance



Playing the voluntary at the end of Choral Evensong in Portsmouth Cathedral

In recent years I have accompanied services in Canterbury Cathedral, Portsmouth Cathedral and Southwark Cathedral, have played for performances of Faur√©’s Requiem, Vivaldi’s Gloria, Britten’s Rejoice in the Lamb and broadcast live on BBC Radio 4’s Sunday Morning Service.

I’m a regular accompanist for services and student performance at the Church Music Foundation Degree Study School based at Canterbury Christ Church University.

In my role as Organist and Choirmaster, I accompany services weekly at St Stephen’s Church in Canterbury. Accompaniment includes choral music from across the last 500 years, hymns and psalms; solo organ music from a similar time period, carefully chosen to fit the liturgical season, is used at the beginning and end of services.

Recent performances include a recital at St Mary’s Church, Banbury including music by Bach, Stanford and Lefebure-Wely and the first recital on the organ at St Stephen’s Church, Canterbury, following its rebuilding.

Please contact me if you are looking for organ accompaniment for a service or concert.
