Roger Sayer
Roger Sayer is Organist and Director of Music at The Temple Church, London, having previously held the same position at Rochester Cathedral. He is also Deputy Chorus Director and Accompanist to the London Symphony Chorus.

In his early years, Roger was an organ student at St Paul’s Cathedral and also won many prizes for organ playing as a student at the Royal College of Music. Notably his success as a prize winner in the 1989 St Albans International Organ Competition led to a career of international recital tours which take him all over the world. He has made many recordings both as organist and conductor. In 2005, he completed the complete organ works of Bach.

Under his direction the Temple Church Choir has performed live on BBC Radio 3, Classic FM, the Cadogan Hall, in Washington DC and Holland. Roger is organ soloist on the soundtrack of the blockbuster film Interstellar and has performed the score live at the Royal Albert Hall.
