Lowell Mason in Cathedral Church of St Paul the Apostle - early January, 1852

from Musical letters from Abroad, page 16:

[...] Both organs at Worcester (as also St. Paul’s here) were played in the true organ style, and without the slightest tendency to the light, frivolous, overture, polka, waltz, dance-prevailing manner so common with us. Dr. Hodges, in New York, and the elder Hayter, in Trinity church, Boston, are both fine specimens of well-educated English organists.
