Ignatz Moscheles in London - in the beginning of 1823

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 49:

I was at a so-called Oratorio Concert; one part consisted of sacred, another of secular music. The public may have found the former part rather longer than they liked, for the people stormed and stamped because certain pieces of the 'Donna del Lago,' which had been promised in the programme, were left out.
