Convent congregation - 1805

from My Musical Life, pages 347-8:

At the age of twenty-one (1805) he made a second professional tour, passing through Lucca and Piombino, and in one convent church where he played a concerto, the excitement was so great that the monks had to leave their seats to silence the uproar in the congregation.
