Lady Raffles et al. in London - early June, 1839

from Letter from Baroness Bunsen to her mother Mrs Waddington, 4 June 1839, page 508:

The 'Messiah' was glorious, and it was a true enjoyment to hear it with my husband and Lady Raffles, who felt it as I did. Braham performed the opening piece, with the same power as ever! The preservation of his voice is wonderful; but he sung nothing else.
