Douglas Murray — Organist
Douglas comes to us from McKendree United Methodist Church where he served as Organist since 2012. Before that, Doug served for over 12 years as Organist at First Presbyterian Church, Nashville, playing for weekly Sunday services in addition to performing on several major recordings and concert programs. Doug was a finalist and 2nd place prizewinner in the prestigious American Guild of Organists National Competition in Organ Improvisation in Boston. In addition to his work as an organist, Doug is a professor in the department of English at Belmont University.
As an English teacher, Doug considers the hymn text carefully when preparing his hymn accompaniments. He is passionate about congregational singing and works hard to convey the meaning of the text from the organ. He enjoys our Juget-Sinclair organ, having first played it for its dedication in 2007.
Doug lives in Inglewood with his husband David Lyle. They are the proud parents of twin daughters, Mary and Frances, age 7.
