from A Memoir of Baron Bunsen Volume II, page 129:

An extract from a Contemporary Notice, 1st May, 1847 - On Thursday afternoon, 29th April, we had the pleasure of a visit from Mendelssohn, who, having no evening to spare, came to luncheon, and afterwards gave us some magnificent music : he not only played himself, but kindly accompanied Ernest in singing, whose voice sounded better than ever.
