Ignatz Moscheles in The Crystal Palace - in the middle of 1866

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 414:

Our great musical episode was the Handel Festival in the Crystal Palace; Costa steered his ship very cleverly through the giant rocks of this locality, and Titiens, with her colossal voice, sang splendidly; the effect at times of the double choruses was so thrilling that I thought to myself, 'Fancy old Handel standing and conducting his gigantic works in this gigantic place!'
