Reuben Thomas


Reuben Thomas began his singing career at the age of eight in the choir of St John’s College, Cambridge, where he returned to take a BA and PhD in computer science, and won both academic and choral scholarships.

A London-based baritone, writer and programmer since 2005, Reuben is a lay clerk at Westminster Cathedral, and sings regularly with groups such as the Academy of Ancient Music, the Hanover Band and Philharmonia Voices. Recent projects include a recording of Buxtehude’s Jesu membra nostri with the choir of Trinity Hall, Cambridge, and the first performance of the choral cycle To Every Thing…, for which he wrote the lyrics and Jamie Hall the music.

In September he will join the men of Westminster Cathedral Choir in singing 24 hours of the Divine Offices in Oxford.

Books include a mock-epic in verse, The Youth Hostel; a 100-year diary, The Life Book, and most recently a collection of poetry in English, French, and Perl, Recalled Home.
