Concert audience in St James the Less - late 19th Century
from My Musical Life, page 119:
Again, at Saint James the Less, Westminster, at another school-room concert, I played. There I think the feelings of the audience were very mixed. A good many seemed scandalised at a parson playing the fiddle at all. Others were shocked at his performing thus publicly.
