James Davy is in his eighth year as Organist and Master of the Choristers at Chelmsford Cathedral. Since his appointment the output of the music department has grown considerably, and collaborations in that time include performances with the David Pickthall Big Band, Chelmsford Sinfonietta, Canzona Baroque Orchestra, The King’s Singers and The Band of HM Royal Marines. James has twice been chorusmaster for operas by Benjamin Britten at the Aldeburgh Festival - in 2014 and 2017 - working with world-class singers and orchestral musicians. He is also musical director of the Chelmsford Singers, with whom he pursues an enterprising and imaginative concert programme.

Prior to his appointment at Chelmsford, James held posts at Portsmouth, Durham, St Albans and Blackburn Cathedrals, and at Winchester College. An experienced broadcaster and recorded performer, James has worked on BBC and ITV television, BBC Radios 2, 3, and 4 and local radio; he has performed on and produced a number of CD recordings, including Sing Praise to Christ featuring the choirs of Chelmsford Cathedral.

James is a published composer and in his remaining spare time plays the piano with the David Pickthall Big Band and is a keen equestrian; with his Irish Sports Horse Max, James is aiming to compete at One Day Events; you can follow their journey on social media using the hashtags #eventingorganist #80by40 and #equestrianorganist.
