Welcome to the online home of Rupert Jeffcoat

Rupert Jeffcoat hails from Scotland, and was for 8 years Director of Music at the iconic Coventry Cathedral, where he led their choirs on a dozen foreign tours, making broadcasts and recordings. He subsequently spent 5 years serving as an Anglican minister in Australia, where he was able to fit in being Director of Music at St John’s Cathedral, Brisbane! 

After a choristership in Edinburgh, he studied at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge, where he was a Scholar, under Peter Hurford, Alexander Goehr, Hugh Wood, Robin Holloway and Peter le Huray. He gained his Fellowship of the Royal College of Organists with a prize aged only 20, and was privileged to play regularly for the world-famous choirs of both King’s and St John’s colleges.

Described as ‘truly virtuosic’ by the Gramophone magazine (Sep 2005), and ‘masterly’ by the Melbourne Age (Oct 2006), Rupert’s luminous musicianship is remarked upon wherever he plays. Blessed with a phenomenally wide repertoire, his recitals are pitched precisely to the venue, audience, instrument and occasion.
 
But Rupert is not merely an entertaining or enlightening organist: he is a published composer and theologian, as well as being a distinguished accompanist, an accomplished choir-trainer and an illuminating speaker.
