Sedding's last and most mature work, and the outstanding London example of the Arts and Crafts movement in the ecclesiastical field. The patron was the Earl of Cadogan. £22,000 had been spent by 1890. Sedding wanted churches to he "by living men for living men', and Holy Trinity has certainly freshness and daring at a time when Pearson and the younger Scotts designed in the most accomplished neo- Gothic idiom. . . . Many of the leading artists of the day con- tributed to make Holy Trinity a museum of 1890s design. There is a complete blend between the medievalizing Pre-Raphaelite-Morris and the Italianizing trends. Henry Wilson, Sedding's pupil and successor, and a first-rate decorative artist, carried on after Sedding's early death in 1891. — Cherry and Pevsner, 559
