"... an excellent example of a responsible, learned composer whose work is at once of our own time and of the great continuum of composers ..."
- Kevin O'Brien, D.M.A.
Welcome to the online portfolio of the Welsh composer, Andrew Cusworth.
Raised in Pembrokeshire, Wales, Andrew studied music as an organ scholar at Magdalene College, Cambridge. After some years working as a church organist, he returned to Cambridge to read the then new MMus in choral studies. Subsequently, he received a PhD for research on Welsh music and cultural history from The Open University. He has a wide range of interests, both academic and practical, and divides his time between working as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Bodleian Libraries in Oxford and his home in West Wales.
Andrew has written for ensembles and artists including the choir of St. Paul's Cathedral, the choir of Salisbury Cathedral, Concanenda, and John Turner. His music has been performed around the world and in settings such as St John's College in Cambridge, Westminster Abbey, and the Temple Church in London, as well as having received recognition in international competitions, broadcasts, and recordings.
