Alexander Mackenzie in Southwark Cathedral - 1919

from A Musician's Narrative , page 247:

Even more touching, because personally nearer to us, was the solemn Service in memory of the lost students of the two united schools, when the choirs of the Royal College of Music and the Temple (under Hugh P. Allen and Walford Davies) sang an impressive Motet by Parry, and other works, and the violinists of the Royal Academy played Corder's Elegy and my Postlude In Memoriam in the ancient church, with an indescribably effect upon a large assembly of mourners.
