Charles Halle in Birmingham - August, 1882

from Life and letters of Sir Charles Hallé; being an autobiography (1819-1860) , page 308:

Since I wrote last I have been to Birmingham and heard the first performance of Gounod's 'Redemption'. My first impression was more than confirmed; it is a dull work and monotonous in the extreme.
