The Cathedral of Christ the Light

Enjoy the sounds of the magnificent Conroy Memorial Organ as we welcome renowned organist Edward Landin to The Cathedral of Christ the Light.  Performance of works by Cooman, Decker, Phillips & Landin.  Free-will offering.


Edward Landin began his intensive musical training at the St. Thomas Choir School under the direction of Gerre Hancock. Upon his graduation from St. Thomas, he entered Interlochen Arts Academy where he began his organ studies as a student of Thomas Bara. After high school, he attended the Eastman School of Music for two years; he then transferred to Westminster Choir College where he completed his BM in organ performance as a student of Ken Cowan. While at Westminster, he also studied harpsichord with Kathleen Scheide.

Further organ studies and coachings have been with Roberta Gary, David Higgs, Susan Landale, Marie-Louise Edward Landin PhotoLanglais, Kimberly Marshall, Paula Pugh Romanaux, Kathleen Scheide, and Carole Terry.

Currently Assistant Director of Music at Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church, his duties include directing numerous children's and handbell choirs as well as being the principal accompanist for the 80 member Sanctuary Choir. Edward has previously held positions in New York City (Christ Church, Methodist), Morristown, NJ (St. Peter's Episcopal Church) and in the Mt. Airy neighborhood of Philadelphia (Grace Epiphany Episcopal Church). Recital engagements have been at The Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, and at St. Thomas Church in New York City, and Old West Church, Boston; he has also performed in Germany and Wales as well as on the historic 18th century Andreas Silbermann organ in Strasbourg, France. Edward’s achievements as a church musician and performer were most recently recognized when he was named as a member of the “Class of 2017” by The Diapason magazine’s program, “20 under 30,” which lifts up young professionals in the world of organ, harpsichord, carillon, and church music.

A major interest in contemporary organ music, particularly by American composers, led Edward to commission "E," "Fantasia," "Parodies," and "Sonatine" by Kathleen Scheide, "Praeludium," and "Psalm 139" by Pamela Decker, "Prelude on the Carillon d'Alet" by Craig Phillips, and "Exordium" and "Bryn Mawr Voluntary" by Carson Cooman. A composer himself, selections have been published by Lorenz; a complete listing of his compositions is available under the "compositions" section of his website: www.edwardlandin.com.  Read more on the website!
