Alan Horsey was born in the New Forest town of Fordingbridge. He received his musical training at the Royal College of Music.

Following appointments in Leeds, where he was the Organ Fellow at Leeds Polytechnic and member of its part-time staff [a period when he also enjoyed a happy association with the music at Leeds Parish Church] and at St James’s, Muswell Hill in North London, he became organist at Bradford Cathedral in 1986, holding this position with distinction until 2002.

From 1997 to 2015, he served, to much acclaim, as Conductor of Ilkley and Otley Choral Societies.

He now pursues a freelance career as a continuo player and as accompanist to Leeds Philharmonic Society and Overgate Hospice Choir based in Halifax. Such spare time as Alan now has is devoted to pipe-organ restoration, working with John R Clough and Son Ltd.
