His death, by his own hand, took place in 1707. He was most gifted as a miniaturist. Benjamin Rogers, the erratic organist of Magdalen College, Oxford, and composer of the well-known 'Magdelen Tower Hymn' (itself a nice piece of writing in this style: see EH 328) was another able minor composer of the time.

The Church at worship was the people at worship. The second stream tended to say that the Church was there to instruct. Worship was not, in the medieval mind, so much a classroom as a theatre. The puritans said that the mind was indeed the part of a Christian that was most likely to need constant vigilance and correction.
