Queen Victoria - early September, 1835

from Journal of Princess Victoria, 9 September 1835, page 15:

I must say with the exception of a few Choruses and one or two songs [Messiah] is very heavy and tiresome... I am not at all fond of Handel's music, I like the present Italian school such as Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti, etc., much better.
