Lowell Mason in Cologne Cathedral - late June, 1852
from Musical letters from Abroad, page 153:
The darkest, most uncleanly, and uninteresting city we have seen is Cologne. Farina himself nor the whole company of Farinas, can keep it clean. Yet its cathedral, though unfinished, is grand; and there we heard the priests, with organ aid, chanting their Gregorian mass.
