Cathedral Singers of Christ Church Oxford
Convivium Records presents, in Association with the Cathedral Singers of Christ Church Oxford and Director, John Padley, an exclusive recording How Shall I Sing That Majesty.
The Cathedral Singers of Christ Church, Oxford are the voluntary choir which sings the daily services when the Cathedral Choir is not in residence.
The Singers are musicians from all walks of life who maintain an excellent musical standard, with repertoire extending from early Renaissance polyphony to twenty-first century composers.
They perform other services and concerts in Oxford and beyond, with recent engagements including Westminster Abbey and Exeter Cathedral and weekend tours to Paris and Brussels.
The choir are always pleased to welcome new singers, in all voice parts.
John Padley was born in Shrewsbury and received his early musical training as a chorister at Hereford Cathedral where he was also taught the organ by Dr Roy Massey. On leaving school, he was appointed organist of St. George’s Cathedral, Jerusalem with its magnificent Reiger organ. Following this, he continued his training at Cardiff and London Universities. He moved to Sherborne in 1987 as Assistant Organist of Sherborne Abbey and was appointed Organist and Choirmaster in 1999, a post he held until 2002. At the same time, John worked at Sherborne School and ran the well-known Chapel Choir with whom he toured widely including singing in St. Mark’s, Venice and St. Peter’s, Rome. He is well-known in the South West as an accompanist, conductor and recitalist especially for trumpet and organ. He was appointed Musical Director of the Cathedral Singers in September 2003. He is also currently the Director of Music at Queen Anne’s School, Caversham.
