St Mary-at-Hill is a Church of England church on Lovat Lane, a cobbled street off Eastcheap in the ward of Billingsgate in the City of London. It was originally founded in the 12th century and it was first known as "St. Mary de Hull" or " St. Mary de la Hulle". It was badly damaged in the Great Fire of London in 1666; afterwards it was partly rebuilt and has been much altered since, although some medieval Fabric survives. Although its official address is Lovat Lane, the more notable side faces a street, itself called 'St. Mary at Hill', where there is a large two-faced clock extending several feet into the street. There is a narrow alleyway alongside, but no right of way.
Music and Traditions:
From 1510 the Chapel Royal choir sang here. The organ-builder Mighaell Glocetir worked at St Mary-at-Hill from 1477 to 1479. He is possibly the same person as the builder Myghell Glancets who worked on St Michael, Cornhill, in 1475. The great composer Thomas Tallis was organist at St Mary-at-Hill in 1538–1539. A William Hill organ was installed in 1848 and partly restored after the 1988 fire, but a more complete restoration did not commence until 2000. It is now used for concerts.
