The World's Greatest Music
It's an institution that goes back almost 500 years. Today, Judith Weir is Master of the Queen's Music but who were her illustrious predecessors?
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.
