Christ Church High Harrogate

"Christ Church on the Stray"


John T Jackson rebuild of 1908 Norman & Beard itself a rebuild of a previous instrument (Abbott?)


1980 rebuild saw addition of Positive style mutations to Choir and enhancement of pedal as well as providing a new detached console.


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"
