Stephen Farr (organ)
The Harrison & Harrison Organ of St Albans Cathedral

A former organist of both York Minster and Guildford Cathedral, Philip Moore ranks among the most significant and prolific of British choral and organ composers of the late-20th and 21st centuries.

With a unique and recognisable musical voice, Moore’s music is performed regularly around the globe. Organist Stephen Farr, himself a former organist of Guildford Cathedral, explores Moore’s considerable and growing body of organ works with this captivating album of music for the instrument containing several premiere recordings and recorded on the impressive Harrison and Harrison organ of St Albans Cathedral.

‘An album of Moore’s organ music was overdue, and full marks to Stephen Farr and the Resonus team for bringing this about. [...] Lyrical and bold in equal measure, Moore’s music always leaves you feeling uplifted, and Farr is to be applauded for getting to the heart of the vitality in this fine music.’

‘There’s plenty of drama in these works by Philip Moore, performed by his Guildford Cathedral successor, Stephen Farr. It’s St Albans Cathedral’s instrument that’s on display here, though, handled with precision’
