William Whitehead - potted biog!

* Won first prize at the Odense International organ competition in Denmark, 2004

* A recorded artist on dozens of discs, he is most recently to be heard as organ soloist in Handel’s Op 7 No 1 Organ Concerto with the Gabrieli Consort and Players (Winged Lion label).

* A sought after organ teacher, teaching many students at both Oxford and Cambridge Universities.

* As curator of the Orgelbüchlein project, William is seeing through a large-scale project to 'complete' Bach's unfinished collection. This international project has already garnered much interest and is fast becoming a cross-section of the most interesting composers at work today. More information is available at
