Robert Ramsay was organist of Trinity College, Cambridge. He left a 4-part service worthy of Orlando Gibbons, eight anthems of 5 and 6 parts, (including an impressive setting of When David heard that Absalon was slain which approaches the style of the Restoration full anthem), and a remarkable dialogue, In guilty night, setting a paraphrase of I Samuel 28, 8-20.
