Ignatz Moscheles in London - 1847

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 336:

What shall I say of Jenny Lind? I can find no words adequate to give you any real idea of the impression she has made. Independent of the fact that the language of panegyric is exhausted, this wonderful artiste stands far too high in my judgment to be dragged down by commonplace complimentary phrases, such as newspaper writers so copiously indulge in. This is no short-lived fit of public enthusiasm. Everybody wants to see and hear her, or, having seen her, to see her and hear her again.
