Organist at St' Paul's Cathedral in London around 1525, during the reign of Henry VIII, Redford's compositions contributed greatly towards giving the organ an instrumental idiom of its own. The Glorificamus in particular has been referred to as "precious evidence of the advancement of organ music in England .... freeing this kind of music from the yoke of vocal polyphony."
