Biography:
Richard Moore

Richard Moore read Music as Organ Scholar of St John’s College, Oxford, where he was responsible for the Chapel music programme, from playing for chapel liturgies to looking after the 2008 Aubertin organ. In September 2011 Richard took up a place at the Royal College of Music, studying Organ with David Graham, and in 2013 graduated from the MMus degree with distinction, attaining the Walford Davies prize in organ performance.

Until August 2014, Richard held the William and Irene Miller Organ Scholarship at St Paul's Cathedral, where, in addition to playing for services and training choristers, he also played at a number of important occasions, including the funeral of Baroness Thatcher. After leaving St Paul's, he spent a year as Acting Assistant Organist of St Martin-in-the-Fields, where he accompanied the three principal choirs in a varied liturgical and concert programme, and on Radio 3 and 4. A highlight of his time at St Martin’s was the service to commemorate the 70th anniversary of VJ Day, which took place in the presence of HM Queen Elizabeth II and other members of the royal family, and was broadcast on BBC television. He currently pursues a varied freelance career, based in London, including concerts and recordings with Ellie Lovegrove as the Trumpet and Organ duo Illumina.
