Stephen Farr (organ)
Indira Grier (cello)

Highly acclaimed organist Stephen Farr presents an album of organ works by composer Francis Grier Performed on the Dobson Organ of Merton College, Oxford. Grier demonstrates an individual approach to timbre and texture in writing for the organ and shows fascinating traits which are testament to a wide range of musical, and non-musical, influences which extend beyond the bounds of the cathedral world to experiences drawn from his years in India.

The album features A Celebration for All Saints, commissioned by Farr and first performed in 2022; De Profundis scored for organ and cello, performed here by Indira Grier; Flourish and Reverie dating from shortly after Grier’s return from India in 1990; and Wir haben schwerlich, composed to join works by a variety of composers in the Orgelbüchlein Project.
