A special performance from Michael Graham and Timothy Noon as part of our Month of Music at Exeter Cathedral. Admission included with Cathedral entrance (£5).
Tenor Michael Graham hales from the North West, where his studies at the Junior Royal Northern College of Music and Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral (where he was organ scholar) formed his love of music. He has been a lay vicar in the choir at Exeter Cathedral since 2016 and is also the Director of the University of Exeter Chapel Choir and several community choirs in the city and beyond. He is much in demand as a singing tutor and as a tenor soloist, where he is a popular figure on the Devon concert circuit.
Exeter Cathedral’s Director of Music, Timothy Noon received his early music education as a chorister at Hereford Cathedral, later learning the organ with Dr Roy Massey. At the age of seventeen he was appointed Organ Scholar of Canterbury Cathedral, and the following year became Organ Scholar at Christ Church, Oxford where he also read for a degree in music. In 1993 he became a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists, winning six prizes in the examination, including the coveted Limpus prize. On graduating with First Class Honours, Timothy was appointed sub-organist of St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin. He returned to Canterbury Cathedral as Assistant Organist in January 1997, subsequently becoming Organist and Master of the Choristers of St Davids Cathedral (Wales), then Director of Music at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King in Liverpool. He has appeared many times on television and radio and has made numerous commercial recordings to date as soloist, accompanist and conductor. As an organist, he is a frequent solo performer, giving concerts in many prestigious venues across Europe and New Zealand.
