Timothy Noon

Enjoy the awe-inspiring sound of the Cathedral’s magnificent organ as the evening sun reflects on the unparalleled architecture of the nave during our summer recital series. These concerts will feature some of the country’s leading players, performing a veritable feast of varied organ music, with a video-link to the organ loft, enabling the audience to see the magic unfold on the keys at close quarter.

Timothy Noon is the Director of Music at Exeter Cathedral. He 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. Since then Timothy has held the roles of sub-organist of St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin, Assistant Organist at Canterbury Cathedral, 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. Timothy 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. To be with his Kiwi wife, Elizabeth, Timothy moved to New Zealand in 2011, accepting the position of Director of Music at Auckland Cathedral of the Holy Trinity. Immersing himself in the country’s musical scene, he worked not only on a daily basis with the cathedral’s three choirs, but by serving as a council member of Australia and New Zealand College of Organists, on the governing body of the New Zealand Choral Federation, and participating as organist in projects with Auckland’s main orchestras.
