Paul Fisher is a native of North Worcestershire and was born in 1943. The composer worked for 30 years as an ordained minister in the Church of England before taking early 'retirement' to live in the Yorkshire Dales and concentrate on music, art, climbing and hill-walking. A piano diploma holder from the (then) Birmingham School of Music and Royal College of Music, Paul began serious organ studies and composition about 8 years ago, studying performance with Stephen Layton, Anne Marsden Thomas, Gerard Brooks and currently with Kevin Bowyer. Paul composes mainly for the organ, but has also written some other instrumental works and choral music. His music is inspired by encounters with people, and by events and celebrations, the natural world and spirituality. Humour and passion in music is very important to him.

Paul is married to Sue. They have a son Michael, a daughter Helen and two cats.


Paul is always very happy to accept commissions for new works and is available to give organ and piano recitals. Please use the form on the contact page to email him for more information.
