Mark Swinton was educated at the King's School Chester and studied for

Music degrees at the University of York. A Fellow of the Royal College of

Organists since 2006, he has given numerous recitals at venues throughout

the UK. He has also performed in France, Germany, Holland and Spain both as

a soloist and an accompanist. He is married to Holly, a primary school teacher

and dyslexia specialist. They have two sons, Conrad and Angelo.

Mark has been Assistant Director of Music at the Collegiate Church of St Mary,

Warwick since October 2011, having previously held appointments at Kendal

Parish Church, Bath Abbey and Clifton College, Bristol. Here at St Mary’s, he

accompanies the Church’s Choirs in their round of four choral services every

week and in their busy regime of concerts, tours, recordings including the CDs

“Christmas from Warwick” and “Gaudeamus omnes” (Regent Records) and

broadcasts including BBC TV Songs of Praise, BBC Radio 2 Sunday Half-Hour,

Radio 3 Choral Evensong and Radio 4 Sunday Worship. Mark also directs St

Mary’s Scholars, the Church’s mixed adult chamber choir which sings for

services in the absence of the regular choirs. He has also served as Acting

Director of Music for the latter half of 2017.

Mark’s recital engagements have taken him all over the UK and abroad, to

venues including Westminster Abbey, York Minster, Bath Abbey; the

cathedrals at Bristol, Blackburn, Carlisle, Hereford, Ripon, St Albans and

Southwark (amongst others), the priories of Cartmel and Christchurch, the

chapels of Magdalen and Queens Colleges (Oxford) and also such civic venues

as Hull City Hall and Reading Town Hall. His first solo CD “Colours of the Klais”

(Cloister Records) celebrating the 10th anniversary of Bath Abbey’s Klais

organ, was released in 2007. Further CDs have included “A Bach Family

Album” (2015) and “The Ord-Tempered Harpsichord” (2016) for Willowhayne

Records, as well as “The Lark in the Chapel” (2015), a recording of works for
