Ernest Farrar, Finzi's teacher and quite a prolific composer but not well recorded or performed, was organist here. He was killed in the Great War. I'll have to get to know more of his works, all I recall at present is that I have some songs of his on a couple of Hyperion CDs including an excellent album "War's Embers"
