An historic and special feature of the Church is its organ.
The organ dates from 1696 and the pipes were made by Christian Schmidt and his famous uncle Bernard, who were building the organ in St Paul’s Cathedral around the same time. The case has fine carvings, attributed to Grinling Gibbons, who also worked together with Christopher Wren at St Paul’s.
The organ has subsequently been added to and restored by eminent organ builders: John Snetzler in the 18th. century and Henry Willis in the 19th.
