Adam leaves the role of chief organist at Wells to the cathedral choir, which has enabled him to accompany a full calendar of choral and civic services there.
Before working in Somerset, Adam was Assistant Director of Music at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral in Edinburgh for two years.
He was involved in the restoration of the cathedral’s 1879 Father Willis organ.
In 2021, York Minster’s great organ played again after its ‘once in a century’ refurbishment.
A two-year program included the dismantling, cleaning and repair of the 5,400 pipes.
