Child''s "Sharp Service" was reputedly the piece de resistance in St George''s Chapel, Windsor in the first decade after the restauration. It was probably the service performed exclusively for the entertainment of Pepys and his wife upon their expedition to meet Child, 26th February, 1666. It is said that Child wrote this service to puzzle his choirmen, they having ridiculed some of his music because it was so easy.
