in Foundling Hospital, London - between late 18th Century and mid 19th Century

from The History and Objects of the Foundling Hospital , page 105:

The class of music used in the chapel has, during the last sixty years undergone a great change, doubtless in favour of the more refined taste of modern times. The original Choir of the Chapel consisting of Bind Foundlings, the music was necessarily adapted to their powers and capacities. In fact, the most popular Hymns sung in the Chapel at the time, were written and composed for them. The Poet of the Chapel was the Resident Apothecary, Mr. McLellan.
