Richard Brind(16?, England- March 1718, London) was an English organist and minor composer of the 17th century.


Born in England, possibly in London, sometime during the 1670s or 1680s, Brind was a chorister at St Paul’s Cathedralmarker as boy and young teenager. While there he sang under the directorship of John Blow and Jeremiah Clarke. After Clarke's death in 1707 he was appointed vicar-choral and, while not succedding him as Master of the Choristers, he did take over his post as organist at St Paul's. According to music historian Sir John Hawkins, Brind was "no very celebrated performer", and, although five anthems are listed in Divine Harmony (London, 1712), none of his compositions survives. He is best remembered today as a teacher to composer Maurice Greene.
