Greg Morris is Associate Organist of the Temple Church in London, Musical Director of Collegium Musicum of London, and founding Musical Director of the Bar Choral Society.
An acclaimed solo recitalist and recording artist, Greg has performed widely throughout the UK and Europe. He gave the world premiere of David Briggs’ Organ Concerto, and subsequently recorded the work with the Northern Chamber Orchestra. His first two solo CDs, including an “authoritative” (American Record Guide) performance of organ music by Kenneth Leighton, received widespread critical acclaim. His recordings for Signum include the first CD to be recorded on the newly restored organ of the Temple Church. Featuring Whitlock’s magnificent Sonata, it has been described by Gramophone as “a singularly impressive release”.
Since 2006, Greg has accompanied the Temple Church Choir. He has performed with them on BBC Radio 3, in CD recordings, in the presence of Her Majesty the Queen, and most recently in the Library of Congress and Supreme Court in Washington DC at events to
mark the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta. He performs widely as a freelance accompanist and ensemble player, and has appeared at the BBC Proms with the BBC Singers.
Greg also works extensively as a conductor. Recent and future projects include: chorus master for the choristers of the Temple Church performing Britten’s A boy was born at the BBC Proms; music by Bach, including the Magnificat, with Collegium Musicum of London; directing the Temple Singers and Players in fully-staged performances of Purcell’s The Fairy Queen in the historic Middle Temple Hall; conducting the Bar Choral Society in music by Faure? and Vaughan Williams with baritone Roderick Williams.
Greg held scholarships at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, Jesus College, Cambridge and St Martin-in-the-Fields. He was awarded the Silver Medal of the Worshipful Company of Musicians for his prize-winning performance in the FRCO diploma, and was subsequently Assistant Director of Music at Blackburn Cathedral.
