      Born in London, Herbert (Henry John) Murrill was an organist, choral conductor, broadcasting executive and composer. He studied from 1925 to 1928 at the Royal Academy of Music with York Bowen, Stanley Marchant, and Alan Bush. From 1928 to 1931 he was an organ scholar at Worcester College Oxford, where he took courses with Ernest Walker and Sir Hugh Allen.

In 1936 he joined the staff of the BBC, where he was programme organiser in 1942. After working in the British intelligence service from 1942-1946, he returned in 1948 to the BBC as assistant head, reaching the post of Head of Music in 1950.
