from Letters of composers : an anthology, 1603-1945 / compiled and edited by Gertrude Norman and Miriam Lubell Shrifte., page 273:

Speaking of masterpieces, let’s talk about the song from Le Roi, “Cher pays”, which a cellist performed this morning (rather amateurishly, too amateurishly, alas) in the guise of an offertory for the nine o’clock Mass. I played the organ (600 francs, imitation old oak, from Alexander’s).
