This concert hall is at the heart of St Peterburg's musical history. It was originally built in 1889 by Benoir to replace a small, former concert hall. It was partly responsible for the birth and growth of Russian professional art, and with its own personal institute and historical organ, coupled with its amazing acoustics it became a phenomenon in the world of music. Its organ was built by the English organ-making firm of E.F. Walker in 1891 and taken from its place in the Dutch church on Nevskii Prospekt in 1927 to be installed in the Capella. The Capella's choir has its origins in 1479 when, by order of Great Duke Ivan III, a choir was created in Moscow.
