Concert audience in St Peter's, Stepney - the 1860's
from My Musical Life, pages 118-9:
Since my ordination I have, with great reluctance, and under considerable pressure from old friends, broken through my rule of never playing in public. Once at St. Peter's, Stepney, where I was curate for a short time I played at a concert, got up for the edification of the parish, in the school-room. The people, I think, were too much surprised thoroughly to enjoy me in so completely novel and unexpected a character.
