Ignatz Moscheles in Edinburgh - in the beginning of 1828

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 139:

The church service, from which the organ is banished, struck me as peculiar. The Psalms are intoned by a four-part choir, in which the congregation joins. But the basses are usually in unison with the sopranos, instead of forming the support of the other voices.
