Amy Fay in Sondershausen - September, 1873
from Music-Study in Germany: The Classic Memoir of the Romantic Era, pages 253-254:
Just as our noisy vehicle clattered up to the inn and some of the gentlemen jumped out to arrange matters, the solemn strains of a chorale were heard from a church close by, with its grand and rolling organ accompaniment. Somehow it made me feel sad to hear it, and a sense of the transitoriness of things came over me. It seemed like one of those voices from the other world that call to us now and then.
