Sit­u­ated op­po­site the Old Bai­ley, St Sepul­chre’s is one of the churches whose bells are cel­e­brated in the song ‘Or­anges and Lemons’. It is where a young Henry Wood learned to play the or­gan and, when he died in 1944, his ashes were in­terred here. Sir Henry also fea­tures in a win­dow ded­i­cated to St Ce­cilia, pa­tron saint of mu­sic. The north side of the church fea­tures fur­ther mu­sic-re­lated win­dows, and is known as ‘The Mu­si­cians’ Chapel’.
