Charlotte Moscheles in Paris - in the middle of 1839

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 259:

Can you understand how people can set such horrors to music? The one writes about the plague; the other worse. I am no saint but organ playing and church music are out of place in a theatre. And when the graves open, and the dead nuns rise, I can't help shuddering.
