German Prince in Windsor - 21 March, 1871

from Life and Reminiscences of Sir George J. Elvey, pages 207-208:

"What a different scene was this to those blood-won triumphs from which the German Prince had just come, and how different from the battle-music which he has been hearing, the sweet and holy melody of Handel, with which the skilful organist concludes the ceremony. Again one is sensible that music is much more eloquent than language."
