Originally built by the townspeople of Wakefield in the mid 14th century as an integral part of Wakefield's new stone bridge. However, what you see today is largely a 19th Century rebuild by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. Nowadays, the Chantry Chapel is often open for exhibitions, talks, and other events - including occasional concerts and recitals - as well as for regular services.

‘Founded in 1730, the Grosvenor Chapel is an Anglican Church in Mayfair providing a place of worship and stunning venue for concerts and events ...  In 1991 ... William Drake of Buckfastleigh, Devon ... built a new organ in a broadly 18th c. English style. The Great has the traditional long compass and all pipework is new except for the treble of the Swell Stopped Diapason. The original Jordan front pipes survive, but were not used in 1991 as they are not at “modern” pitch. The organ is tuned to an unequal temperament and has mechanical action for keys, pedals and stops. The console was modelled on surviving 18th c examples and the pedalboard is flat and straight. Soundboards are of traditional construction with no modern materials, and the action is unbushed. The case was remade and restored by William Drake.’

‘The Chapel is the only place of worship in the UK belonging to a Lord Mayor and Commonality, and is thus designated a “Civic Peculiar”. It does not have a parish or particular denomination, and has sought a mission which recollects its foundation and history, in ways which are relevant to the present age and consistent with being “of the City Council”. There is an excellent choir of eight voices, supported by an equal number of deputies. Worship is according to the Prayer Book  ... There are also frequent musical concerts, typically on Saturdays at 1.15pm. The chapel choir and deputies make up the sixteen voices of the Chapel Singers, who perform two or three concerts per year. There are also recitals from music students at the University and Red Maids School, and vocal, organ, and other instrumental recitals. These concerts are all free, with a retiring collection.‘

‘The Choir of Merton College has established itself as one of Oxford’s leading mixed-voice choirs. The choir consists of 30 undergraduates and post-graduates, many of whom hold choral scholarships at the College. Members of the choir read a wide range of subjects, and some members of the choir are students at other colleges. The main focus of the choir’s work is the singing of the services in Merton College Chapel where, in addition to Choral Evensong, special services such as the Advent, Christmas and Epiphany Carol Services and the Requiem Mass for All Souls have a large following. The choir continues to build its reputation worldwide through numerous international tours, broadcasts and recordings ... In a golden age of organ-building, the College’s new Dobson instrument stands out as exceptional. It is only the third American-built organ sent to the UK since the Second World War, a bold commissioning choice.’

The acoustics of Trinity Chapel make it an excellent venue for concerts. The College Music Society organises numerous concerts during University Term, and other organizations promote concerts here ... Trinity’s magnificent mechanical-action organ is regarded as one of the finest organs in the United Kingdom. The original instrument was built by the famous "Father" Smith in 1694 and 1706 ... In 1976 the Swiss firm Metzler Söhne completed the present mechanical-action instrument based on the surviving pipework, and within the original cases, of the 1694 and 1706 'Father' Smith organs. The 42-rank instrument is remarkable for its meticulous craftsmanship and durability, in addition to its rich but gentle resonance and its exquisite balance.'
