Hermann Klein in Royal Albert Hall - December, 1900

from Thirty Years of Musical Life in London, 1870-1900, page 465:

Hans Richter was wont to declare that Edward Lloyd was the first tenor to bring out in all its fascinating loveliness the exquisite vocal charm of the “Preislied”. That thought occurred to me when he was singing it at his farewell concert at the Albert Hall in December, 1900; and I was fain to admit that upon the operatic boards only Jean de Reszke had accomplished with this inspired melody what Edward Lloyd had done with it upon the concert platform.
