Francis Grier was a chorister at St Georges Chapel, Windsor Castle, the first music scholar at Eton College, and then organ scholar at Kings College. As a young boy he composed a great deal, but the first part of his musical career was mainly taken up with performing. After Cambridge he became Simon Prestons assistant at Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, succeeding him as Organist and Tutor in Music in 1981, at the age of 25.
In 1985 he resigned his appointments to study music, theology, and meditation in India, and then worked with people with learning difficulties in communities in London and Bangalore. Since 1989 he has been based in England again, and now divides his time between composition and psychodynamic counselling.
