Mr. E.H. Thorne in Windsor - mid 19th Century

from Life and Reminiscences of Sir George J. Elvey, page 95:

Mr. E. H. Thorne, who was also his pupil, says, " His style of organ-playing was pre-eminently a grand Church style, while his reading of many of the anthems of Croft, Boyce, Greene, and others was most striking, and instinct with religious, dramatic, and poetic feeling."
