Baroness von Bunsen in Munich - 3 June, 1838

from Letter from Baroness Bunsen to Henirich Abeken, 4 June 1838, page 482:

[Munich] 4 June [1838]. - We were at church twice yesterday, - the sermons very good, Edelmann and Wagner: the effect of the voices of a whole congregation in the singing had a fine effect, which brought tears to my eyes, unused as I am to hear more than our own small handful in the Capitol.

The Bunsens had recently and sadly left their home of 21 years in Rome, Baron Bunsen having resigned his post as Prussian minister to the Vatican after the failure of his attempts to mediate a disagreement between Berlin and the Vatican over 'mixed' (Catholic/Protestant) marriages.
