Boston School Committee in 1837 (he became mayor the next year), the committee resolved “that one school from each district be selected for the introduction of systematic instruction in vocal music.” No funds were available, however, and Mason offered to teach without pay in the Hawes School in the 1837–8 school year.

The standard of the services remained low, however; Goss, organist 1838–72 , did little to improve it in spite of mounting criticism. Reform began in 1868 with the appointment of Robert Gregory to a minor canonry. Under his lead, and after 1872
