Alfred Ernest Floyd was born in Aston, Birmingham in 1877 and after attaining a Doctorate of Music and work in the UK came to Australia in 1915 to take up the position of organist and Choir Director at St Paul’s Cathedral, Melbourne a position he held for 32 years.

Two Airs from ‘Bonduca” by Henry Purcell (1659 - 1695).

Christopher Hogwood;

No details of when these airs were arranged, they may have been student works so I’ve played them on the St Anne’s organ which is only a few Kms from where Floyd was born.
