Lowell Mason in Düsseldorf - 1 August, 1852

from Musical letters from Abroad, page 175:

From this we went at ten o’clock to the “Grosser Kirche,” also Protestant. Here the house was larger, but the congregation smaller. The order of service was nearly the same; the organist acted also as precentor, or leader of the singing; besides him there was no choir; he, both by his instrument and his voice, caused himself to be heard.
