John Collins has been organist at St. George’s, Worthing for almost 27 years and is well known as a specialist in early keyboard performance practice, particularly including the Iberian, Italian and English keyboard repertoires in which areas he undertakes research and visiting lectureship for the Royal College of Music, Royal Academy of Music and Royal College of Organists. He has given lectures at Oxford on English and Cambridge on Spanish keyboard music and has published many articles and reviews in English, American and European Journals to critical acclaim. His article on the keyboard works of Bernardo Pasquini was adopted as a set text at Oxford and current commissions include articles on Pablo Bruna and John Keeble.
