Wilhelm Ganz in St James's Hall - 1877

from Memories of a Musician: Reminiscences of Seventy years of Musical Life, page 132:

In the next season (1877) I performed the overture to Wagner's Meistersinger and his Huldigungs Marsch, which he dedicated to King Louis of Bavaria. These works were not then much known in London and they attracted a large audience. Herr Arnim von Boehme, from Dresden, sang " Siegmund's Liebeslied " from Die Walkiire, and a young English singer, Miss Elene Webster, " Elizabeth's Prayer " from Tannhduser. I also gave the Flying Dutchman overture.
