Dame Ethel Mary Smyth in Scotland - between October, 1883 and November, 1883

from Impressions That Remained Memoirs, page 329:

They [family relations at Muirhouse, Scotland] all loved music and beauty generally, and would listen for hours to soft Brahms and Schubert songs, but when I tried them with Bach's Organ Toccata in D Major, Mr. Davidson ran away, saying that sort of music sounded best in the next room.
