'Pedalling ahead with Mendelssohn: The German revolution in English organ technology' by Robert Quinney, Sub-Organist, Westminster Abbey with Robert Smith, Organist, St Mary-at-Hill Gresham Professors Sir Christopher Wren and Robert Hooke supervised the rebuilding of St Mary's which still reflects their gracious and spacious vision for their first post-Great Fire church. In the early 16th century the choir, which included Thomas Tallis and William Munday, sang elaborate daily services. St Mary-at-Hill boasts what has been described as one of the ten most important organs in the history of British organ building, built by William Hill in 1848 and restored by Mander Organs. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-german-revolution-in-english-organ-technology Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.
