York Minster has appointed a former cancer research scientist as its new Canon Precentor.
The Reverend Canon Dr Vicky Johnson will be charged with helping to deliver worship and music and will take up the post in January.
Currently serving as Residentiary Canon at Ely Cathedral, she will succeed York Minster’s Rev Canon Peter Moger, who is moving to a new role in the Scottish Episcopal Church.
Upon her arrival, Dr Johnson will lead the cathedral’s liturgy and music team, supporting the work of the director of music and the 48 choristers and 12 adult singers of the York Minster Choir.
She will also seek to develop music outreach in the community over the coming years.
