William Faulkes, the second organist of St. John's, was a renowned performer, conductor, teacher, and prolific composer. Many pieces of his organ music remain popular with organists to the present day. In some musical directories of the late 19th century and early 20th century, Faulkes is described as a "leader of the modern English school of organ playing" and a "leading composer of the English romantic school of organ playing".
