Dr. Bridge in Windsor - mid 19th Century

from Life and Reminiscences of Sir George J. Elvey, page 150:

"It was a treat to watch, as well as to listen to Sir George's masterly accompaniment, especially in the Handelian anthems, which I maintain were given with greater finish and brilliancy at St. George's Chapel than in any other place ofworship in England. " The Chandos and Coronation anthems, the Funeral anthem written in honour of Queen Caroline, once heard in St. George's Chapel when Elvey and his choir were at their best, can never be forgotten by those who heard them.
