Our Adjudicator: Norman Harper
Norman Harper was born in south Essex and educated locally until he won an organ scholarship to Gonville & Caius College Cambridge. While reading for a music degree he studied organ with Peter Le Huray and Gillian Weir, and composition with Peter Tranchell.
Since then his career has encompassed school director of music posts in the north-west and in London, organ playing as soloist and accompanist in the UK and abroad, church music appointments and examining for the ABRSM. He has broadcast solo recitals on BBC Radio 3 and recorded CDs of organ music by J.S.Bach, Brahms, Mozart, Flor Peeters and contemporary British composers.
Most recently Norman has held the post of director of music at St George’s Metropolitan Cathedral, Southwark. Under his direction St George’s choirs have broadcast services on BBC radio and television, and made two CDs: Music for the Mass (Priory) and Christmas at St George’s (Regent).
