in Windsor - 5 July, 1872
from Life and Reminiscences of Sir George J. Elvey, page 211:
The second item, 'The Lord will comfort Zion' was only a selection from a large work composed for the Worcester Festival of 1857; but the portions selected were sufficient to show the scholarship of the composer in the most advantageous light. The contralto solo, sung by Miss Marion Severn, and the three choruses are admirable specimens of Sir George Elvey's style of treatment, and were enthusiastically received.
