Why West Gallery? Singers and musicians invariably sat in a gallery at the west end of the church. Maybe it was not a co-incidence that this was the furthest place from the altar, the vicar
and the local dignitaries. When the congregation joined in to sing, they had to turn to face the music being performed in the west gallery. That is where the expression comes from.
