Baron von Bunsen in Potsdam - 1 January, 1828

from A Memoir of Baron Bunsen Volume 1, page 299:

Then he proceeded to speak of Church music, and said, ' I told you in Rome that I regretted not taking you with me to Verona to hear the singing in the Russian chapel : we must see what we can arrange here, for we have a small Russian colony.' Then he called General Witzleben, and commissioned him to arrange that the Russian singers should perform on New Year's day at Potsdam, whither he invited me.
