Tim Harper – Assistant Director of Music

Tim Harper moved to Ripon Cathedral as Assistant Director of Music in September 2014. He trained as organ scholar successively at St Barnabas Church, Dulwich, Clare College, Cambridge, Canterbury Cathedral and St Paul’s Cathedral. During this period he toured the USA and Austria, assisted at the services for the 2008 Lambeth Conference, accompanied several CDs, performed live on BBC TV and appeared with the City of London Sinfonia. A pupil of David Sanger, he gained the major prizes at ARCO and FRCO, including the RCO Coventry Cathedral award; he was subsequently awarded the Silver Medal of the Worshipful Company of Musicians.

In 2010 he was appointed Assistant Director of Music at Birmingham Cathedral, playing the first of several broadcasts in his first term there. He also appeared with the Royal Ballet Sinfonia, Ex Cathedra and the Birmingham Bach Choir. During this time he studied organ with Andrew Fletcher and singing with Matthew Venner.

A frequent recitalist, particularly in London and the West Midlands, he also enjoys continuo work, and is accompanist to the early music course NORVIS. An interest in jazz keeps his improvisational muscles flexed, finding more direct employment as part of a trio accompanying jazz Eucharists at St Paul’s Cathedral, sung by the choir Aurora Nova.
