Lowell Mason in Dresden - early April, 1852

from Musical letters from Abroad, page 102:

At 11 o’clock we attended the Catholic Church, where Grand Mass was performed; the music, by Hesse, was sung by a very good choir, accompanied with an efficient orchestra. It was brilliant and exciting, and occupied a little more than an hour.
