Southwell Minster welcomed their new Canon Precentor, The Reverend Dr Richard Frith, who was licensed by the Bishop of Southwell & Nottingham, the Rt Revd Paul Williams, on Sunday 8th September at 3.30pm.

Richard will lead the creative development of music and worship at the cathedral, working with the chapter, the choirs and music department and the rest of the Minster team to develop Southwell’s wider spiritual life in the years to come.

He is married to Emma and they have an 11-year old son, Stephen. Richard commented: “We are all very excited at the possibilities and opportunities that moving to Southwell will bring, and we are looking forward to making friends and becoming part of the local community.”
