Ignatz Moscheles in London - 1823

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 52:

The moment when the whole host of them stand up together is an imposing one. But, how could they all, with the powerful organ accompaniment to the Psalms, and while singing in unison, contrive to fall the fourth of a tone, and that also in unison!
