Lowell Mason in Frauenkirche Dresden - early April, 1852

from Musical letters from Abroad, page 102:

At 8 o’clock I attended the Frauen Church, a very large circular building, having four galleries all around, and in some five and even six. The Organ, which is powerful, stands very high over the altar; perhaps thirty feet from the floor. A fine introductory voluntary, full of joy, was played, closing with a very lively fugue; after which the people sang a chorale.
