He was a choirboy at St Paul's Cathedral, and served as organist at several churches before being appointed Master of the King's Musick in 1755 and Organist of the Chapel Royal in 1758.

      Finding arrangements for "old favourites" is something one thinks is easy but the search can be frustrating. Using the Music Room site was easy for a non-computer person of 'advanced years' and the sheet music arrived in a sturdy package within 24 hours.
