Christopher Stembridge studied languages at Cambridge and Musicology at Oxford.

His special field of interest is Italian keyboard music of the renaissance and early baroque. In addition to publishing various papers, he has edited music by de Macque, Mayone and Frescobaldi. Apart from the organ, he also plays the clavichord and the cembalo cromatico, a harpsichord with 19 notes to the octave a reconstruction of an instrument that was widely used in late 16th-century Italy.

After many years as a lecturer at University College Cork, Ireland, he now spends much of his time in Italy teaching organ and harpsichord at the School of Church Music in Brescia and giving regular master-classes on historic organs in Arezzo and Brescia. He also spends time in Cambridge where he teaches and researches, and travels widely giving lectures, recitals and seminars in Europe and the USA.
