Tom Ó Drisceoil (b.1986)

I'm a harpsichordist, organist, musicologist, music teacher and occasional composer from Cork, Ireland.

Completed an MA degree in performance at CIT Cork School of Music in 2012, which included an Erasmus term at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater "Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy" at Leipzig. I graduated with a BMus degree from CSM in 2010, and I graduated from UCC in 2007 with a BA Degree. I have a particular interest in French and North German harpsichord music, and have lately been developing a serious interest in the music of Christoph Graupner, particularly the church cantatas. I am currently pursuing Doctoral research into the cantatas of Graupner at the University of Edinburgh.

I'm also an enthusiastic choral singer, and I sing tenor with Madrigal '75 Vocal Ensemble.

Current editing projects:
Critical editions of various cantatas and other pieces by Christoph Graupner.

Note that my own preference for part nomenclature in German baroque music is for singular part names (i.e. Violin[o] I), and that plural part names on IMSLP for my own uploads (i.e. Violins I) are not my choice.
