Born in London, Paul Burke studied with Robert Saxton at Worcester College, Oxford and with Paul Patterson at the Royal Academy of Music.

Paul’s music has been recorded on the Naxos and Convivium labels and performed in cathedrals and churches across the UK.
As a choral conductor and arranger, Paul has worked with artists such as Charlotte Church, Laura Mvula and Imogen Heap, appearing at the Purcell Room, Queen Elizabeth Hall and The Roundhouse.
