Gordon Stewart is one of the UK’s most popular and adaptable organists; he has played Celebrity Concerts in such places as St Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey and Westminster Cathedral, the Laurenskerk, Alkmaar and at Symphony Hall in Birmingham, Melbourne Town Hall, Pietermaritzburg City Hall and Johannesburg Cathedral. His large repertoire means he can design concerts suitable for most organs and audiences. Playing regularly on the 1860 Father Willis organ at Huddersfield Town Hall, where he has been resident organist for over 25 years, he has built a large and enthusiastic following.
Gordon tours abroad most years; recent tours have included the Netherlands, Sweden, Australia and South Africa. Gordon has recorded several CDs, and those of the organs of Huddersfield Town Hall, Johannesburg Cathedral, Pietermaritzburg City Hall, Providence Church, New Mills, All Saints' Church, Hastings and Pontefract Parish Church. Also available are recordings of organ music by Andrew Carter and Noel Rawsthorne. The Royal College of Organists, The Royal School of Church Music and the Guild of Church Musicians have all awarded him Honorary Fellowships, and the University of Huddersfield awarded him an Honorary Doctorate.
