Ignatz Moscheles in Dresden - between 1816 and 1821

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 22:

I find the effect of the Mass grand [...] twenty violins, six violas, four basses and violoncellos, with but one only of each of the wind instruments, with the exception of the four bassoons, the leading solos sung by Sassaroli.
