Prior to Mark Hindley's appointment the choir has had four Directors of Music:
Edward Caswell is a versatile and widely respected choral conductor. Working throughout the UK and Europe he has established a reputation for approaching choral conducting from a singer's point of view. He works regularly with the Netherlands Radio Choir and Collegium Vocale Gent, among many others.
In 2013 Edward founded Cromarty Youth Opera in his home in Scotland and in August 2016 he led the company in their fourth fully staged opera, Dido and Aeneas by Henry Purcell.
Edward was Director of The Wordsworth Singers from 2007 to 2009, during which he conducted them in a performance at the Lake District Summer Music Festival, and on a concert tour to Northumberland and Lindisfarne.
