We are heartbroken to announce that Carl Davis CBE passed away this morning, following a brain hemorrhage.


We are so proud that Carl’s legacy will be his astonishing impact on music. A consummate all-round musician, he was the driving force behind the reinvention of the silent movie for this generation and he wrote scores for some of the most loved and remembered British television dramas. He was a conductor and composer of symphonic works, as well as a notable writer for the ballet.


In 2005 he was awarded a CBE (Hon).


A beloved Father, Grandfather and Husband, Carl married the actress Jean Boht in 1970.  They have two daughters, Hannah and Jessie and three grandchildren, Molly, Fred and Alice.


The family would like to send their grateful thanks to the paramedics who assisted Carl and the Neurological ICU Team at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.
