David Briggs (English musician). Redirected from David Briggs (composer)). David John Briggs (born November 1, 1962) is an English organist and composer. He started his career as a cathedral organist as Assistant Organist in Hereford Cathedral before becoming the organist of Truro and Gloucester Cathedrals. Heavily influenced by Jean Langlais and Pierre Cochereau, Briggs is regarded as one of the world's finest improvisors, and now works as a concert organist.
David Briggs - Organ Recitalist, Composer, Conductor and Improviser. KING OF KINGS tonight at Riverside Church demonstrated how to do the art of film accompaniment with a panache, uniformity, style, subtlety and CLASS that should be the example for the rest. Just brilliant and intelligent and, as a result, engaging in a way that was communicative and worthy of tremendous respect. Bach at the Garden of Gethsemane, the Agnus Dei chant at an appropriate moment and shadows of Mahler were but a few of the interwoven thoughts. David is increasingly in demand as a composer. Currently Artist-in-Residence at the Cathedral of St John the Divine, New York City, David is also Organist Emeritus of Gloucester Cathedral, UK.

The organ at St John’s was designed by Thomas Christopher Lewis in conjunction with the first organist of St John’s, Alfred James Eyre (who was also organist to the nearby Crystal Palace). The first part of the organ was in place for the dedication of the chancel in 1882, although it was not completed for 45 years. The organ is situated in a chamber high in the north transept, facing south and west. The church suffered severe war damage in 1944. It was restored in 1947 and in the same year . Mander renovated the organ. By 1995 the instrument was fast becoming unplayable, with the organist Adrian Adams and his assistant Colin Williams having to resort to increasingly desperate methods of repair. Built by Lewis of Brixton, 1882 Restored by N. P. Mander of London, 1947 and Harrison & Harrison of Durham, 1999. For specifications, see the entry in the National Pipe Organ Register
In the hands of David Briggs this organ finds its master. The programme is cleverly selected achieving the necessary balance between the pieces. Briggs' use of the full range of stops and swell pedals, offers fantastic moments: breathtaking crescendos and diminuendos, as well as melodic embroidered miniatures especially in the slow passages. The two improvisations of Cochereau, whose influence looms large in Briggs' musical development, show his ingenuity in the art of improvisation. It also reveals the organist's big commitment to spend a great amount of time transcribing some.
