“A sensation in the world of jazz” – Mail on Sunday
St John’s Smith Square
The magnificent church of St John the Evangelist was designed by architect Thomas Archer as part of the ‘Commission for Building Fifty New Churches’ of 1710. St John’s was the most elaborate of all, with construction lasting 14 years, from 1714 to 1728.
As Sir Hugh Casson has said of St John’s “…just to come across it in that quiet square is an event. To enter it, to enjoy its spaces, to listen to fine music within its walls is an experience not to be matched in conventional concert halls and is a lasting tribute to the man who designed it.”
