Andrew Reid began singing and playing the organ as a child at his local village church in Kent, and was an organ scholar at St Matthew’s, Northampton, at St Catharine’s and Robinson Colleges, Cambridge, and at Westminster Cathedral, before becoming Assistant Master of Music at Westminster Cathedral. He moved on to Westminster Abbey, where he was Sub Organist and played at many national services. In 2004 he became Director of Music at Peterborough Cathedral. He has given organ recitals throughout the world, and famously performed the complete organ works of JS Bach in one 25-hour recital. Andrew became Director of the Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) in 2012, where his job is to steer the organisation in its work to promote the “study, practice and improvement of music … [in] Christian worship.”
