Henry James in Rome

from Italian Hours, pages 180, page 180:

On the 31st we went to the musical vesper-service at the Gesù – hitherto done so splendidly before the Pope and the cardinals. The manner was eloquent of change – no Pope, no cardinals and indifferent music; but a great mise-en-scène nonetheless.
