in Windsor - 1849

from Life and Reminiscences of Sir George J. Elvey, pages 105-106:

"During the short time I was there on this second occasion, the Doctor showed me every kindness, asking me very frequently to spend an evening at his house, sometimes nearly every evening in the week. He took me also to rehearsals, and talked with me in the intervals, describing the character of the music, and pointing out special features. "At home he played and sang to me. In one song was a shake which he did with uncommon purity. " Again and again, but never too often, he played me Mendelssohn's 'Lieder.'
