Dr. Verrinder in Windsor - mid 19th Century

from Life and Reminiscences of Sir George J. Elvey, page 95:

On weekday mornings the music at St. George's was mostly selected from Boyce, Greene, and Croft's collections, frequently unaccompanied, and Dr. Verrinder says : " I confess I have never heard the compositions of Gibbons, Purcell, Blow, etc., given with so much artistic and devotional feeling as in the old days at the Chapel. " The organ accompaniments to the Psalms were a thing to hear and not forget."
