After having previously been organist at St Michael's College, Tenbury, and Oxford University, Stainer became organist at St Paul's Cathedral in 1872. He made reforms to the musical service at St Paul's, including an increase in the number of musicians and expansion of the repertory. He was an eminent church musician, scholar and composer, helping to found the Musical Association, and becoming professor of music at Oxford.
