We welcomed Cameron Luke to the post of Director of Music on 1st September 2007, although he had already been singing with the choir for some time and playing for services across the Team.

Cameron was born and spent his early years in Penzance in the west of Cornwall. After leaving school he spent two years studying at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.

Following a brief return home he moved to Nesbyen in southern Norway to take up a full-time position of Kantor (organist). Here he was responsible for the installation of a new three manual organ built by Kenneth Tickell of Northampton. To date it is the largest English-built mechanical action organ in Norway. His next move was to Somna, in northern Norway and in addition to church duties he worked a great deal with local choirs, accompanying and training them.

In 2001 he took up the offer of a place to study music at Worcester College, Oxford where he was organ scholar, directing and overseeing the day-to-day running of the chapel music with its two choirs.

Cameron holds diplomas from the Royal College of Organists, London College of Music and Trinity College of Music.
His interests include organ building, history, archaeology, theology and the study of academical dress.
in 2012 Cameron was awarded a Fellowship of the Royal College of Organists.
