Stephen Power’s musical training began as a chorister and choral scholar at Gloucester Cathedral, and continued at the University of Huddersfield. It was there he began singing counter tenor, both in the Early Music Ensemble, and at Leeds Parish Church. He was an organist prize-winner upon graduation and spent two years as organ scholar at Wakefield Cathedral before becoming Acting Assistant Director of Music at Ripon Cathedral. He then spent a year at Grimsby Parish Church as Sub Organist, latterly becoming acting Master of the Choristers.
In 2006 Stephen moved to Southwell Minster, Nottinghamshire, to become a Lay Clerk in the Cathedral Choir and Liturgy & Music Assistant, returning to Gloucester in 2010.
At Gloucester he holds the posts of Chorister Tutor and Alto Lay Clerk, but he continues to play the organ and gives recitals and accompanies various vocal ensembles nationally, including Worcester Cathedral Chamber Choir and Monmouth Choral Society (from January 2012).
Stephen is a soloist on Southwell Minster Choir’s 2009 Christmas recording ‘Lo! Newborn Jesus’. He now studies singing with Nicholas Clapton.
