Our Conductor



In September 2014 Jonathan Hope, Assistant Director of Music at Gloucester Cathedral, joined us as conductor.  Jonathan was Organ Scholar at Winchester Cathedral from 2012, where he also served as Acting Sub-Organist & Director of the Girls’ Choir.

Jonathan has played with the Philharmonia Orchestra and appeared at St. John’s, Smith Square and in the Queen Elizabeth Hall (Southbank Centre, London), and has broadcast live on Radio 3 and Radio 4. In The 2016 Three Choirs Festival, Jonathan conducted the Saint Cecilia Singers in a performance of Howells’ Requiem and the world première of Philip Lancaster’s War Passion.

In 2015 he released his first solo disc, Gloucester Experience (Willowhayne Records), and in 2016 he released a DVD, The Grand Organ of Gloucester Cathedral, with Priory Records.
