Lowell Mason in Cathedral Church of St Paul the Apostle - early January, 1852
from Musical letters from Abroad, pages 14-15:
In the afternoon of Sunday, we again attended the cathedral service. The officiating canon and the choir went through it with the speed of railroad travelling, and if that is well done which is done quickly, then this was well indeed. But the idea of worship in such a service, who would think of it, or suppose for a moment that confession, supplication, thanksgiving and adoration, had any part or lot in the matter.
