St James's Church PiccadillySt James's Church was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and opened in 1684. The font, organ case and reredos are by Grinling Gibbons. William Blake was baptised at the church in 1757. Leopold Stokowski was choirmaster from 1902 until 1905 when he left for a similar position in New York and later became internationally known. The music programme at the church is impressive with free lunchtime recitals every Monday, Wednesday and Friday as well as an array of paid evening concerts. The London Festival Orchestra are residents. There's an antiques market on Tuesday and an arts and crafts market from Wednesday to Saturday.
