Joshua Ryan


Australian organist and accompanist Joshua Ryan is a prize-winning graduate of the Royal Academy of Music, where he studied as a Bicentenary Scholar under Professor David Titterington. Joshua is quickly establishing himself as one of his generation’s most exciting interpreters of Olivier Messiaen’s organ works, having performed almost all of Messiaen’s religious suites and standalone works. He is currently Organist and Assistant Director of Music of Hampstead Parish Church, Organist of St Sepulchre-without-Newgate in the City of London, and accompanist of Dulwich Choral Society.

Joshua’s musical interests are diverse and wide ranging. He has worked across Europe and Australia as a soloist, accompanist, and continuo player with a vast array of conductors, singers, choirs, and ensembles including The Academy of Ancient Music, London Mozart Players, Sydney Chamber Choir, Allegri Ensemble, Philippe Herreweghe, John Butt, Rachel Podger, Edward Gardner, Susan Landale, David Ponsford, Hans Davidsson, Eamonn Dougan, Nicky Spence, and Nicholas Mullroy. Joshua has also featured on four critically acclaimed discs as the accompanist with the Choir of the Royal Hospital Chelsea and William Vann, recorded for the SOMM and Albion labels. Reviews by BBC Radio 3 have described his accompanying as “wonderful and beautiful” and “full of colour.”

Alongside Joshua’s performance career, he is also a musical researcher. He is the curator of The Mulliner Project, a significant research project on the reinterpretation of the music of The Mulliner Book on a range of historical and modern instruments.
