British composer and organist Harold Darke held the organist post at Emmanuel Church, West Hampstead from 1906 to 1911. He became organist at St Michael Cornhill in 1916, and stayed there until 1966. It is widely accepted that the Cornhill Lunchtime Organ Recitals series begun by Darke in 1916 is the longest-running lunchtime organ concert series in the world. His midday recitals each Monday, playing Bach in the legato style of Schweitzer, made him a City institution. The series has flourished under his successors up to the present organist, Jonathan Rennert. Darke also served as professor for organ at the Royal College of Music from 1919 to 1969.
