Chapel Musicians

Cameron Davies

Musical Director 2023/24


Cameron is a 1st year Music student originally from Brentwood, Essex.  From an early age he was a member of Brentwood Cathedral, as a chorister, then progressing to become a Junior Lay Clerk as a baritone from September 2022.  During his time working on both liturgical and secular music he developed a passion for conducting and direction, supporting the new generation of choristers and younger students in their singing.  

Now in his role at St Chad’s College, he enjoys the day-to-day variety of music from the choir and the close-knit atmosphere of the group whilst maintaining high standards of music-making.  In addition, he enjoys developing the choir's repertoire, stretching into the 20th and 21st century music repository; discovering less “main-stream” choral composers.


Guy Hepher

Organ Scholar 2023/24


Guy is a 1st year History student from Sussex. He started learning the piano at an early age beginning to learn the organ in 2021 without having a choral background. He currently holds ABRSM grade 8 on the organ, and an LCM performance diploma on the piano. On his gap year he was organ scholar at Sherborne Abbey and School, during which he developed his accompanying skills as well as performance in high pressure situations. In his role at St Chad's he enjoys the range of music, performed to a high standard at the twice-weekly services in the chapel. Guy has described particular highlights being the opportunity to play for College services in Durham Cathedral, which usually take place twice a term.
