Parish History

'Stanmore, Little St. Lawrence [1558], a parish, in the union of Hendon, hundred of Gore, county of Middlesex, ½ a mile northwest of Edgware.

'Handel, who resided at Canons as chapel-master, is said to have composed his sacred drama of Esther for the consecration of Stanmore church; the anthems used in it were composed by him, and the morning and evening services by Pepusch. On September 25th, 1790, a grand miscellaneous concert of sacred music, selected from Handel's works, was performed to his honour in the church.—See Edgware.' [1]
