Public of Windsor in Windsor - the 1840's
from Life and Reminiscences of Sir George J. Elvey, pages 59-60:
" We have great pleasure in the concerts which our zealous and talented Dr. Elvey has instituted for the relief of the monotony of life in Windsor, and we have moreover much satisfaction in assuring him that the entertainment he offered on Wednesday night was very much admired by the crowded assembly which filled the Town Hall. "His ' Mount Carmel ' was greatly appreciated. He has, indeed, done much to entitle him to the grateful consideration of Windsor and Eton, by introducing a taste for the humanizing pleasure of his art, at the cost to himself of a great deal of time and labour.
