from Letter from Baroness Bunsen to her mother Mrs Waddington, 1 May 1847, page 98:

On Thursday we had the great pleasure of a visit from Mendelssohn—who, having no evening to spare, came to luncheon, and afterwards played to us magnificently. He also accompanied Ernest in some songs, and never did his voice sound so perfect.
