Frederick Bridge in Royal Albert Hall - 1875

from Westminster Pilgrim; Being a Record of Service in Church, Cathedral and Abbey, College University and Concert Room, with a Few Notes on Sport, page 65:

I was so fortunate as to see Verdi direct the performance of his splendid "Requiem" in the Albert Hall, in 1875, little thinking that I should come to conduct the same work in the same place. He was a distinguished conductor, and revealed no eccentricities.
