Pius IX et al. in Rome - 31 December, 1869

from Music and manners; personal reminiscences and sketches of character, page 105:

Soon afterwards the venerable Pope arrived, attended by a gorgeous cortege of Cardinals, Bishops, torchbearers, Swiss Guards, Eoman Senators and Knights of Malta. His advent was greeted by a fine choral rendering of a sprightly antique motivo accompanied by silvern bells, triangles innumerable, all three organs and twelve trumpets.
