Acclaimed organist, Stephen Farr returns with an album of organ masterworks from the Tudor and Jacobean era performed on the new Taylor & Boody Organ (Opus 66) of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge.

Installed in 2013, this single manual, mechanical action instrument, features seven stops and was specifically designed to accompany and perform music from the English Renaissance.

Here Farr performs virtuosic works by some of the period's leading composers including William Byrd's Voluntarie for my ladye nevell and John Bull's Coranto Joyeuse. Other composers featured on the album include Thomas Tallis, Thomas Tomkins, John Blitheman and Orlando Gibbons. Farr is also joined by the Gentlemen of the Choir of Sidney Sussex College directed by David Skinner.
