Scope and Content

From Dr [John] Worgan in Gower Street, Bedford Square, London to Charles Wesley. He is writing lest Charles junior forget to pass on the message that he gave him, namely that Charles senior 'is more welcome on Sunday evening next to his Concerto Spirituale, than if he was mitred'.

Note

  • Dr John Worgan was one of the most popular organists of his day, and filled a number of positions at London churches, as well as acting as the composer at Vauxhall Gardens. Charles Wesley junior was one of his favourite pupils, and played the organ at Worgan's funeral in 1790. Source: Dictionary of National Biography
