Alexander Mackenzie in Royal Albert Hall - 1888

from A Musician's Narrative , page 170:

Turning again to Scottish music, The Cottar's Saturday Night then occupied me. The setting of Burn's poem was first performed by the Edinburgh Choral Union, and shortly afterwards at the Albert Hall, where the choir courageously grappled with a foreign tongue.
