William Gardiner in Wanlip - 1789
from Music and Friends: Or, Pleasant Recollections of a Dilettante, page 108:
One morning's entertainment, was a visit to St. Martin's organ, to hear Greatorex perform upon that noble instrument. He excelled in playing Handel's choruses, with a fulness and weight of tone never heard from any other hand: his compact execution was like Doric Architecture, massive and grand!
