Philip Moore


The name of Philip Moore conjures up the dreamy picture of the beautiful and imposing towers of York Minster, where, for more than 20 years, he held the post of Organist and Master of the Music, having succeeded Dr Francis Jackson in 1983. However, if you peruse the catalogues of those British publishers who specialise in choral music, you’ll also see his name in most of them, as a composer and arranger.

Philip Moore was born in London and received his musical education at the Royal College of Music, where he studied organ, piano, composition, and conducting. His career has since led him through a succession of the UK’s most respected choral institutions, where he has built on his expertise on the great Cathedral performance traditions.
