Ignatz Moscheles in Leipzig - 1848

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 347:

We live daily in the memory of Mendelssohn. We are constantly with his dear children, and Cécile has the courage to be present at all the performances where her husband's works are executed, and to listen to such deeply touching compositions as the last quartet in F minor, and the 'Nachtlied,' sung as only Frau Frege can sing it.
