Masters of the Queen's - and King's - Music
Maurice Greene (1696-1755) was organist at St Paul's and at the Chapel Royal before becoming Professor of Music at Cambridge University in 1730. He was appointed Master of the King's Musick by George II five years later. At his death, Greene was working on the compilation Cathedral Music, many items of which are still used in Anglican services today.
