Our team

Multitude of Voyces has no employees: all workers are self-employed contractors or volunteers who may contribute small, discrete pieces of work, or who may be longterm contractors managing the organisation's running and development. 


Louise Stewart

Founder and Director



Louise is responsible for leading, researching and developing the organisation's projects and scope, and for the day-to-day running of the organisation. Her work is partly paid and partly voluntary at this stage of the organisation's development. 



Louise read Music at the University of Exeter in the late 1980s, where she had the extraordinary privilege of studying ‘Cello under Naomi Butterworth and Recorder under Piers AdamsHer degree included a focus on Music Therapy. Following a PGCE in Primary teaching (also at the University of Exetershe taught at Exeter Cathedral School and was houseparent to the cathedral choristers with particular responsibility for nurturing the welfare and supporting the musical education of the probationer choristers (boarders), moving to a fulltime teaching post at Salisbury Cathedral School in 1994, where she also worked as the Assistant Housemistress in the girls' boarding house, again with responsibilities for the pastoral welfare of choristers when the cathedral Girls' Choir was in its infancy.  

In 1999 she broadened her life experience by becoming manager of the country’s first Oxfam Fairtrade Shop, (in Salisbury, Wiltshire). The role introduced her to the challenges of addressing social-justice issues outside the classroom.  

In 2001 she moved to the Maintained Sector, teaching across the Primary curriculum and leading the Music for Worship in three Salisbury primary schools. Through that teaching she built up inter-generational and social-justice community projects through contact with local churches and charities, often using Music as the focus 

In 2006 Louise studied for a PG Cert in Dyslexia (through the University of York) to develop her skillset and to be able to provide inclusive, holistic support to children struggling to access education and to adults whose unaddressed educational needs had limited their life chances. That teaching led to an extensive period of work supporting children unable to attend Mainstream Wiltshire schools and working for Swan Advocacy where her role included supporting adults with Learning Difficulties, Learning Disabilities, Mental Health issues, and women in Refuge  

In 2019 she set aside that work to formalise Multitude of Voyces C.I.C., drawing her various community music projects and interests in social-justice issues together under the one umbrellaand combining her experience in the education and charity sectors to develop this work on a larger scale in collaboration with likeminded individuals and organisations.  

Alongside her other roles Louise has always maintained a small practice teaching recorder to adults and children of all ages. She is a very experienced singer and her extensive experience of singing in church, cathedral and secular choirs has informed her leadership of the Anthology project. She is a longtime member of Pro/Am chamber choir Sarum Voices, and was a founder member of Salisbury Cathedral Chamber Choir. 

Louise is one of the Salisbury area Ambassadors for Inclusive Church and was a founding Trustee of the Species Recovery Trust. 

Andrew Stewart 


Andrew volunteers his time to support and advise Louise with all aspects of the organisation's work. He is also a regular contractor as the organisation's IT Advisor and IT Technician and on the Elizabeth Poston Project. 



Andrew enjoyed a career in music from an early age as a chorister at Salisbury Cathedral under Richard Seal in the 1970s. At Exeter University he studied for a degree in Geography while also a choral scholar at Exeter Cathedral under Lucian Nethsingha. After a short period teaching Geography at Reading Grammar School for Boys (where he was also Staff Governor) he moved to Salisbury in 1992 and took the position of Head of Geography and IT, and Head of Boys' boarding at a time of great development and change for the school with the introduction of the Salisbury Cathedral girl choristers. 

He soon joined the Cathedral Choir where he remained happily in his Cantoris Alto choir-stall for nearly 25 years before taking early retirement from that role and from his role at Salisbury Cathedral School, to support Louise in the development of Multitude of Voyces C.I.C., to broaden his repertoire and experience as a countertenor soloist and to develop his own skills working in the adult community. 

Andrew works part-time as a digital inclusion expert for Music and Wellbeing C.I.C. and for the Safer and Supportive Salisbury dementia and music project.
