Felix Mendelssohn, whose centenary we celebrate this year, was the ultimate cosmopolitan composer, but formed a special relationship with Britain, which he visited ten times.
Mendelssohn was the first composer of international renown after J.

The sound of the English organ of his day had some distinctive qualities, which have been captured on this recording by William Whitehead, who uses the Lincoln Organ now situated in the Ballroom at Buckingham Palace.
It is not known whether Mendelssohn played this particular instrument but we know that he was a warmly welcomed guest of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert at the Palace on numerous occasions.
