John Davenport was brought up in Hampshire. His initial enthusiasm for

music was fostered as a Chorister at Portsmouth Cathedral and as a ‘Quirister’

at Winchester College. He began the organ at ten, and after secondary

education at Lancing College, Sussex, gained the Henry Smart Organ

Scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music, where he gained the ARCO, FRCO

and LRAM (Organ Performance). He then became Organ Scholar at

Peterhouse, Cambridge, and later studied at York University.

He retired from full time teaching in 2005 after 35 years running Music

Departments in various schools around the country, including Director of

Music at Clifton College, Bristol and Director of Music at Bolton School,

Lancashire. He was also conductor of various choral societies and orchestras,

including the Bristol Concert Orchestra.

He now works as an examiner for the ABRSM in this country and abroad, and

is enjoying making music – as an organist, accompanist, cellist and conductor.

He is Director of Music at All Saints, Clifton, and is an accompanist/director of

‘Poscimur’ – a choir that regularly sings in Cathedrals around the country.
