Lloyd, Richard (b Stockport, 1933)
Lloyd was a chorister at Lichfield Cathedral, and then a music scholar at Rugby School, and he completed his education as organ scholar at Jesus College, Cambridge. After National Service, during which he qualified in clerical skills and as a tank gunner, as well as compiling a guide to Paris restaurants and conducting a choir, he became sub-organist at Salisbury Cathedral, and then Organist and Master of the Choristers at both Hereford and Durham Cathedrals. He then returned to Salisbury to teach in the Cathedral School, but he retired early due to ill health and he now spends much of his time writing church music, although he writes little during the cricket season.
