Mervyn Hogg has enjoyed a 'hobby career' as an organist and choir director for many years in parallel to a research and business career in medicine, pharmaceuticals, statistics and information technology. Whilst pursuing his first degree he was organist and choirmaster at the Mary Harris Memorial Chapel, Exeter University during 1969-1971. He moved to Cardiff where he was a member of the music team at St German's, Roath. He was Director of Music at St Martin's, Ruislip from 1978-1998 and interim director in 2010-2012. From 2000-2008 he was a trustee-director of the St Albans International Organ Festival and from 2008-2016 organised the St Paul's Diocesan Choir.  In 2014 he gained an MA in music featuring a dissertation on the influence of Vatican II on the Music of Westminster Cathedral and published a paper on editions of Bach's Orgelbüchlein. He can often be found deputising as organist and choir director for services in London churches or giving lunchtime recitals, most recently at Southwark Cathedral.
