Director of Music
Hugh Morris joined the Cathedral team in January 2015. He leads the music department and is much enjoying immersing himself in the life of the Cathedral and city. An experienced and accomplished choir trainer, organist, and trained teacher, with a passion for a wide range of music both sacred and secular, he has worked in a number of different Cathedrals, churches and schools up and down the country, including Salisbury Cathedral, Hexham Abbey, and, most recently, Christchurch Priory. He particularly enjoys working with young people, which is now largely with the two teams of choristers in the Cathedral choirs.
Hugh is married to Sarah, a part-time GP. They have two daughters aged 10 and 12, both of whom also love music. When not at work Hugh enjoys eating Sarah's excellent cooking, pulling on walking boots and heading off into the countryside, and DIY.
