We're delighted that Glen Dempsey - Herbert Howells Organ Scholar of St John's College - has been appointed as the new Assistant Director of Music at Ely Cathedral.

Glen will take up the role in September, working with the Cathedral's newly appointed Director of Music, Edmund Aldhouse. 

Commenting on his new appointment Glen says 'I am absolutely delighted to be joining the team at Ely Cathedral, with its fine organ and distinguished musical history. It is exciting for me to have the opportunity to contribute to that tradition. Everyone in the Cathedral was extremely warm and welcoming at interview, and thus I am particularly looking forward to becoming part of a group of such wonderful and mutually-supportive colleagues.'
