On this day in 1902, George W. Warren, organist and choir director, died.  Warren served at St. Peter's Episcopal Church and St. Paul's Church  in Albany, New York and Holy Trinity Church and St. Thomas' Church in New York City. No music was played at his funeral, attended by thousands, as the mourners believed they could find no finer organist.
