"In a world where mutability is the one thing on which we can rely, certain names carry with them an aura of comforting constancy: Banks (Music Publications) is a treasured example in the world of music, and their Eboracum Choral Series continues to be a wonderfully reliable resource".

John Scott Whiteley

John Scott Whiteley is Organist Emeritus of York Minster, having worked at that great cathedral from 1975 until 2010when he retired from the Minster in order to pursue his freelance career. During the past ten years he has become well-known for his performances on BBC2 and BBC4 television of the complete organ music of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Having studied at the Royal College of Music with Ralph Downes and W.S. Lloyd Webber, and with Flor Peeters in Malines and Fernando Germani in Siena, John Scott Whiteley won first prize in the1976 National Organ Competition of Great Britain. He then performed at the Royal Festival Hall, for the UK Annual Conference of the Incorporated Association of Organists, and at festivals throughout Europe.

Composition continues to occupy him more frequently, and he has now completed some eighteen works for organ and seventeen church compositions. A number of his compositions have been broadcast on BBC Radio Three and in 2010 he recorded a CD of his own organ works played on the organ of York Minster.

Between 2000 and 2008, John Scott Whiteley was Director of the Girl Choristers of York Minster, with whom he recorded a CD of the music of Lassus in 2008. He has taught the organ at the Universities of Hull and Huddersfield, and, as a visiting tutor, at the Royal Northern College of Music. He has often been an adjudicator for organ competitions, and he is an examiner for the ABRSM and for the Royal College of Organists, having been a member of the council of the RCO for over ten years.
