Prebendary Matthew Owens to become Director of Music at Belfast Cathedral

Prebendary Matthew Owens, Organist & Master of the Choristers, has sadly decided to leave Wells Cathedral at the end of August.  Matthew has been offered (and has accepted) the position of Director of Music at Belfast Cathedral.

We are very sorry to be losing Matthew. He has made an outstanding contribution to Wells over the last 14 years, and has raised the standard of the choristers and music in the cathedral to an exceptional level. His vision, integrity, tenacity, musicianship, and rigour have been instrumental in ensuring the choir has gained a formidable reputation locally, nationally, and internationally.

We wish Matthew, Ali, and their sons, James and Edward all the very best for the future.

The Very Reverend Dr John Davies, Dean of Wells
