Ignatz Moscheles in London - 1849

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 354:

Beethoven's Mass in C was a rare treat, and so was Mendelssohn's 'Hymn of Praise.' Costa wields his baton more in Italian than German style, but he kept the 700 performers admirably together, although the 'Tempi' were not always what I am used to.
