Anthony Hunt has been the organist at St John’s Cathedral, Salford since 2000. First and foremost a liturgical organist and accompanist rather than a recitalist, he has over 25 years’ experience in church music.
Anthony studied under both Richard Lea and Simon Leach at Liverpool’s Metropolitan Cathedral and was a freelance organist and musician in the Liverpool area until embarking on a four year degree in French and Latin at Manchester University.
He has given concerts and recitals within the Northwest of England and in France and has been remarked on for his varied repertoire which ranges from early Baroque to the 20th century, and right up to the present day. He is also an accomplished improviser, having attended summer master classes in improvisation given by French organists Jean Wallet and Pascal Sabot.
In addition to appearing in several television recordings for Songs of Praise and My Favourite Hymns, Anthony has worked with various choirs, soloists, Gilbert & Sullivan and choral societies, including Todmorden Choral Society, Monton Voices and Woodhouses Amateur Operatic Society. Anthony is in popular demand as liturgical organist for events in Salford Diocese and on the annual diocesan pilgrimages to Lourdes.
