Greg Morris

Greg conducted our Christmas 2006 Concert.

Greg Morris is Associate Organist of the Temple Church in London, a position he has held since September 2006. He combines this post with a busy career as a freelance organist, and has performed at many of the country's leading recital venues. In June 2006, Greg was the organ soloist in the world première of David Briggs' Organ Concerto, written in celebration of the organ of Blackburn Cathedral, and he has made the first recording of this work on the Chestnut label. His first solo CD, Sounds Inspirational, which features music by composers including Bach, Buxtehude, Duruflé and Messaien, has received widespread critical acclaim.

Greg held organ scholarships at St George's Chapel, Windsor, Jesus College Cambridge and St Martin in the Fields. He studied with Andrew Dean, Paul Stubbings, John Kitchen and Thomas Trotter, and was a double prize winner in the Fellowship of the Royal College of Organists examinations. In 2000 he was appointed Assistant Director of Music at Blackburn Cathedral, where he accompanied the Cathedral Choirs in a busy programme of recordings, concerts and tours in addition to the Cathedral's regular services. This included several acclaimed broadcasts on BBC Radios 3 and 4 and BBC TV's Songs of Praise. Greg also directed the Cathedral Young People's Choir in a programme which included four commissions, tours to Rome and Vienna, and broadcasts on BBC Radio 4. He was also a regular accompanist for the Radio 4 Daily Service Singers.
