‘As a proportion of total music composed, religious music has declined in recent centuries - in particular since the mid-20th century - though many composers still work in this area, harnessing the power of music to help communicate, explain and explore religious texts, and to capture some of their spirituality ... All Saints was one of the first Churches in London to use Viennese Masses, and the choir currently sings 11 Masses by Mozart and 7 by Haydn ... In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the revival of traditional liturgical worship within the Church of England from the mid 19th century - of which All Saints was an important part - saw a significant stream of settings from Britain ... The church's repertoire continues to represent a wide cross section of music and worshipers can hear music from the 16th century until the present day - the repertoire embracing such figures as Purcell, Blow, Boyce, Bairstow, Dyson, Harwood, Jackson, Mathias, Walton, Tavener ...’

‘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 Abbey has been the Coronation church since 1066, and the setting for many other great events in the life of the nation. It is the burial place of kings and queens, and of other distinguished figures in the nation’s history, from writers and musicians to politicians and scientists ... Westminster Abbey has resounded to music every day for over one thousand years. Singing has played a hugely important role, from the plainsong Offices sung by the monks of the tenth-century monastic foundation to the daily choral services sung by the Choir of Westminster Abbey today. Over the intervening centuries some of the most illustrious British organists, singers and composers have been closely associated with the Abbey, which continues to play a leading part in the musical and cultural life of the nation today.’
