Born in London.
Noël Tredinnick gained a grounding in the choral tradition at Southwark Cathedral in London, where he was head chorister, and proceeded on to a successful, twice prize-winning period of study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama then focusing on organ and composition.
Whilst still in his early twenties, Noël became Organist and Director of Music at All Souls' Church, and, later, professor at the Guildhall specialising in conducting, orchestration and keyboard skills - two posts he still holds. At All Souls he pioneered the move towards the use of orchestral instruments, which culminated in the emergence of the All Souls Orchestra and on to the now familiar PROM PRAISE, which he presents internationally. He was also a founding Director of Langham Arts.
His reputation in this work has led to regular visits to the USA and Australia to conduct and lecture, and in 1995 he was invited by The Billy Graham Organisation to lead and conduct the music for Mission Ontario at the Sky Dome Stadium in Toronto, returning also for 'Mission Ottawa'.
He has contributed to many hymn and songbook publications, is a Director of Jubilate Hymns Ltd and has also been involved in the Music in Worship Foundation and the Archbishops' Commission on Church Music and its publised report 'In Tune with Heaven'.
In recent years, Noël has frequently worked with the BBC. Beginning with conducting engagements with the BBC Radio and Concert Orchestras, leading to writing and presenting a two-part documentary on Oscar Hammerstein for BBC Radio 2 - reflecting his life-long passion for the musical theatre. Most noticeably, though, Noël has become an increasingly familiar face on BBC TV's 'Songs of Praise' series.
In 2002 he received an honorary Lambeth Doctorate of Music.
Noël is married to Fiona and they have a daughter, Isabel, and a son, James.
