John Wesley in Bristol Cathedral - 17 August, 1758
from The Journal of John Wesley, page 243:
I went to the Bristol cathedral to hear Mr. Handel's Messiah. I doubt if that congregation was ever so serious at a sermon as they were during this performance. In many parts, especially several of the choruses, it exceeded my expectation.
