Ignatz Moscheles in London - February, 1842
from Recent Music and Musicians, page 287:
It is, as you may imagine, a model of 'singableness' (if I may say so), but it is not sufficiently church-music to my taste; his solitary fugue is clumsy. The criticisms on the work are very various, some agree with me, but the majority delight in the captivating Italian phrases, which I admire too, but which I cannot think are in the right place.
