David Cook is organist at the church of All Hallows by the Tower in the City of London.  Prior to this he was for ten years Director of Music at St. George’s Church Bloomsbury and at Saint Mary Abchurch.  He studied the organ and harpsichord in London with Gordon Phillips and in Paris with Daniel Roth and Naji Hakim.  David has an active career as a recitalist and has performed in the U.K, France, Germany and Spain. Venues include St. Paul’s Cathedral and Westminster Abbey.  He is a keen exponent of Baroque and early English organ music, but his varied and interesting repertoire encompasses music from the sixteenth century through to the present day and includes transcriptions of orchestral works as well as symphonies by Vierne and Widor. As an accompanist and continuo player David appears regularly with the London Gala Orchestra.
