CHRISTOPHER BOWERS-BROADBENT

The English organist Christopher Bowers-Broadbent began his musical education as a chorister at King's College, Cambridge, and went on to study organ and composition in London at the Royal Academy of Music, where he became professor of organ in 1976. An important exponent of contemporary music, he has commissioned new repertoire and has given first performances of works by Arvo Pärt, Gavin Bryars, Henryk Górecki, Philip Glass, Stephen Montague, Robert Simpson, and Priaulx Rainier. Bowers-Broadbent, who is organist and choirmaster of Gray's Inn Chapel Choir in London, has made numerous recordings, including the works of Pärt, with which he has an especially close connection, as well as music by James MacMillan, Messiaen, Elgar, and Howells. Since 1973 he has also been organist of the West London Synagogue, Great Britain's first Reform congregation, opened in 1870.
