Charlotte Moscheles in London - in the middle of 1837

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 240:

I proposed to write down on paper all the names of the gentlemen, and throw them into a hat, if they would promise to play in the order in which they were drawn. This was agreed to, and we had a regular 'Assaut de Pianos.' Luckily the presence of Mrs. Shaw, with her fine alto voice, and Miss Masson, as well as Balfe, with his tenor, enabled us to give our friends some vocal music as well.
