Unknown gentleman in Windsor - mid 19th Century

from Life and Reminiscences of Sir George J. Elvey, page 56:

"The organ at St. George's, Windsor, from its magnitude and quality of tone, gives him an opportunity of displaying the exuberance of his rich imaginative powers and scientific execution ; while the chaste and solemn style in which the Cathedral service is performed reflects great credit upon his taste. Whatever musical honour may be conferred upon him will not be greater than he deserves, for Dr. George Elvey, though so young a man, ranks as one of the first performers on that noble instrument."
