Queen Victoria et al. in Cologne - August, 1845

from A Memoir of Baron Bunsen Volume II, pages 87-88:

Letter from Bunsen to his wife, Palace of Bruhl: Wednesday, 13th August, 1845 - Then followed some fine music, the Wedding March by Mendelssohn, from his 'Midsummer Night's Dream ;' closing with a chorale, in the far echoing and responding tones of horn and trombone. The Queen herself declared that she had never heard anything to equal the effect. The prose of life disturbed its sublimities by unheard-of scramble and disorder, with which I can enter tain you when I return.
