Unknown Female in Oxford - mid 19th Century

from Life and Reminiscences of Sir George J. Elvey, page 16:

A lady, speaking of young Elvey at this time, wrote thus to him many years after : "I remember you as a tall, shy lad with a beautiful voice joining in some glees at my brother s rooms in New College one evening, Dr. Elvey playing. One of the pieces sung was, ' Then round about the starry throne/ and another, 'Now the bright Morning Star.' I recollect it as if it were only yesterday. The pieces sunk deeply into my memory."
