Blake et al. in England - between 1860 and 1869
from Reminiscences of a Stonemason, by a working man, page 41:
The National School was nothing if not churchy, and the piano was practised by the assistant, so that at a pinch he could take the organ at the church or play the harmonium at the school.
Blake and I took turns in blowing the organ once a week for his organ practice. At that time when the organ was playing I was just conscious of a confused mass of sound, and used to be glad when it was over. But it was a novelty to me, walking to the church and opening the gates and doors with keys without having to ask permission.
