Lowell Mason in Lincoln's Inn Fields - early August, 1852

from Musical letters from Abroad, page 163:

At three o’clock we attended the Episcopal service, at Lincoln’s Inn Fields. Mr. J. A. Novello is the principal bass in this choir. The service was quite well done, and the popular anthem by Purcell, “O give thanks,” was highly interesting. In the sermon there was a great falling off, indeed, from that of the morning.
