Robert Jones of Cantorum Choir

Robert Jones - Associate Music Director

Robert Jones was educated at Trinity School, Croydon. In 1975 he became a Music Scholar at Christ Church, Oxford, where he sang in the Cathedral choir. Following graduation, he held posts as Lay Clerk at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor and Westminster Cathedral before embarking on a career as one of Britain’s leading consort singers, featuring on award-winning recordings with the Tallis Scholars, the Orlando Consort and the Gabrieli Consort. He maintains a lifelong interest in piano and organ playing and choral directing, and has been Director of Music at the Wren church of St. Bride’s, Fleet Street in the City of London since 1988.

Jenny Humphries of Cantorum Choir

Jenny Knight - Chairwoman

Jenny loved to sing from an early age. She joined a church choir at age seven and was later head of her secondary school chapel choir. At Royal Holloway, University of London, she sang with the chapel choir every morning before lectures and discovered the joys of choral evensong, recordings and choir tours abroad. After a five year break spent rowing rather than singing, Jenny joined the City of London Choir and loved performing in all the main London concert venues and running the choir's box office. During this time she was also fortunate enough to be part of the St Endellion Music Festivals—a glorious combination of singing (alongside World Class musicians), surfing and socialising on the North coast of Cornwall. For ten years she was also a loyal member of the Evensong choir Quorum, based in Battersea, where she made many lifelong friendships. Jenny joined Cantorum when she moved out of London and now lives in Cookham with her young family. She was elected Chairwoman in July 2016.
