Andrew Gant was a Choral Scholar at St John’s College, Cambridge under George Guest. After several years as a professional singer, including two years as a Tenor Lay Vicar in the choir of Westminster Abbey, he has followed a career as a choirmaster and church musician, holding positions at Selwyn College, Cambridge, Worcester College, Oxford, and The Royal Military Chapel (The Guards’ Chapel), Wellington Barracks. In 2000 he took up his present post of Organist, Choirmaster and Composer at Her Majesty’s Chapels Royal. Under his direction the choir has performed at a number of State events and other occasions as required by Her Majesty, has broadcast on BBC Radio and television and Classic fm, performed at the Proms and worked closely with the Master of the Queen’s Music, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, who has written four works specially for the choir and two other large-scale choral and orchestral works in which the choir has taken part.
