The churchwardens’ accounts for the City of London church of St. Mary-at-Hill (P69/MRY4/B/005/MS01239/001-002) are extensive for the period 1420-1558 and provide a wealth of evidence for the cultural life of the parish. They show that during the first half of the 16th century, the parish was both wealthy and musically advanced, with the church engaging a number of musicians in this period who later became significant figures, including the composer Thomas Tallis (c.1505–1585). This article provides a brief examination of the church’s choir school which was developed by the conductor, organist and master of the choir boys, John Northfolke during the 1520s.

Abstract

The churchwardens’ accounts for the City of London church of St. Mary-at-Hill (P69/MRY4/B/005/MS01239/001-002) are extensive for the period 1420-1558 and provide a wealth of evidence for the cultural life of the parish. They show that during the first half of the 16th century, the parish was both wealthy and musically advanced, with the church engaging a number of musicians in this period who later became significant figures, including the composer Thomas Tallis (c.1505–1585). This article provides a brief examination of the church’s choir school which was developed by the conductor, organist and master of the choir boys, John Northfolke during the 1520s.
