Director of Music, David TrendellDavid Trendell

He received his early musical education as a chorister at Norwich Cathedral. Following an Organ Scholarship at Exeter College, Oxford, he pursued research into the works of Alexander Zemlinsky, becoming Assistant Organist at Winchester College and then Organist of the University Church in Oxford and Lecturer at St Hilda's, St Hugh's and Oriel Colleges, Oxford.

An interest in the relationship between music and liturgy was fostered by his Directorship of the Edington Festival (1987-91), where he also conducted the Nave Choir of Men and Boys until 2000, broadcasting each year for BBC Radio 3. He is active as a conductor, singer, writer, organist and record producer (for ensembles including The Clerks' Group and the Maîtrise de Caen).

He has directed the Choir and lectured in music at King's since 1992, during which time he has established the Choir as one of the finest mixed-voice university ensembles in the country. In addition to his responsibilities at King's, he is Director of Music at St Mary's Bourne Street.
