unknown young girl in Windsor - the 1800's

from Life and Reminiscences of Sir George J. Elvey, page 334:

Little wonder that people speak of the " beauty of his playing, peculiarly his own," but in truth the fingers were but the channel of the rapture of his soul. A young girl once entered the Chapel, and was so impressed by this feeling as to remark, " The way the Psalms are played here is a commentary on the words."
