Evelyn Southwell in Worcester Cathedral - 1912

from Two Men: A Memoir, page 121:

I'm very glad my little messages and cards reached you on the day. Ah yes, Pearsall's 'In dulci iubilo'; the most memorable thing about any Service in Worcester Cathedral, I think, when I first heard it three years ago. You can guess whether I and another lover of it have hummed it a good deal at the time.
