Charles Halle in Rome - April, 1889

from Life and letters of Sir Charles Hallé; being an autobiography (1819-1860) , page 347:

Yesterday at 10 o'clock we went to High Mass at St. Peter's [Rome], which was sung by a Cardinal under the dome, not before the real high altar, but before one on the side of the crypt towards the entrance. The Papal Choir sang, and most beautifully, although the music was the reverse of sacred.
