Robert Cundick was born in 1926 in Salt Lake City, Utah. His talent for the organ manifested itself at an early age. At twelve years old, he was ward organist. After serving in World War II, Cundick attended the University of Utah where he studied composition with Leroy Robertson and organ with Alexander Schreiner. He acquired his B.F.A and M.F.A there (MST) and ultimately received a doctorate in musical composition in 1955. In 1957, Cundick was on the Brigham Young University faculty until called to serve as an organist at the Hyde Park Chapel in England from 1962 to 1964. Upon his return to the United States, Cundick became the Mormon Tabernacle organist in 1965, finally retiring in 1991. Cundick continues to compose today and recently earned the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Pearl Awards in 2004.
