"To preserve the reputation of the Fraternity unsullied must be your constant care."


“The Masonic system represents a stupendous and beautiful fabric, founded on universal purity, to rule and direct our passions, to have faith and love in God, and charity toward man.”
— William Howard Taft

UGLE Grand Organist Plays Bowie Hit


The United Grand Lodge of England's Facebook page this morning posted a tribute to rock legend David Bowie, who died a year ago today, kicking off a grisly year for celebrity deaths.
UGLE's Grand Organist Paul Bowen paid tribute to David Bowie last January by playing Life on Mars on the magnificent Grand Temple pipe organ in Freemasons Hall on London's Great Queen Street. 

Freemason and Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman originally played the piece on Bowie's classic album Hunky Dory in 1971.
