The organist at St Paul's Cathedral (London) caught sight of Felix Mendelssohn (German composer, 1809-47) in the congregation. He sent the great composer a note inviting him to play the organ after the service. Mendelssohn agreed.

The congregation, already shuffling out of the pews to go home, suddenly stopped and sat down again to listen entranced. Suddenly in the middle of a glorious crescendo the music died away and the organ went silent. The organ blower had gone home for lunch!

What could have been one of the great highlights of his life he threw away for something to eat.
