Diocesan Secretary Installed as Canon

On Sunday 4 December, the Dean of Gibraltar, the Very Revd Dr John Paddock, installed Mr Adrian Mumford, the Diocesan Secretary, as a Lay Minor Canon of Gibraltar Cathedral and Honorary Precentor of the Choral Foundation of the Cathedral Church in the Stall of St Cecilia. 

This is a most fitting appointment. Many of us know that, in addition to serving us as Diocesan Secretary, Adrian gives outstanding musical leadership as organist for many diocesan events, including synods. He is, of course, our diocesan organ advisor. 

Adrian is also an active singer, a member of the Twickenham Choral Society and the Marble Singers. He often participates in a small choir which provides music for special services in the Archbishop of Canterbury's chapel at Lambeth Palace. 

St Cecilia is the patron saint of musicians.

Our best wishes to Canon Mumford on this appointment!

  1. Congratulations well deserved. Adrian has devoted many enjoyable years to his position as Secretary to the Anglican Diocease. He also is an accomplished musician and has achieved many degrees in music. He is an accomplished organist and has had the pleasure of playing some of the finest organs in the world. His late Mother and Father would hve been so proud of these achievements. (Michael Oram/Cousin)
