Alan Davis 1945-2021

Alan Davis at NORVIS

We are very sad to report that Alan Davis passed away this week. Alan was a renowned recorder teacher, composer and player, tutor at NORVIS for 40 years until 2018. A marvellous concert of his music at NORVIS in that year, organised by Jane Rumney, celebrated Alan’s contribution to the course and to the recorder world. Despite his loss of sight, he remained a demanding and wonderful teacher, committing so much to memory. His legacy is the playing and teaching of his many eminent students and his huge array of compositions.

Our condolences and love to Eira and to their family. Much fuller remembrances than this short note will follow in due course.
