Biography

The entry in Cathedral Music, Volume 1 (William Boyce) reads:

Richard Farrant was Gentleman of the Royal Chapels to King Edward VI, and Queen Elizabeth, and in 1564 was appointed Organist of St. George's Chapel, Windsor, and Master of the Choristers there. In 1580 he resign'd his Place in the Royal Chapels, and died in 1585.

His Compositions for the Church Service were peculiarly solemn, and well adapted for that Purpose.
