Fans of organ music can visit this battered-looking Gothic church three or four times a week at 5pm for concerts featuring J. S. Bach, Purcell, Pergolesi, Handel et al. The accompaniment could consist of anything from a soprano soloist or trumpet to even a saxophone. Communion was first administered to the congregation in this church in 1414. The Hussite religious reformers' practice of serving sacramental wine to lay people was then considered scandalous by the Catholic establishment. The following year Jan Hus, considered a leading figure in the reformist movement, was burnt at the stake as a heretic.
