Lowell Mason in Düsseldorf - early August, 1852

from Musical letters from Abroad, page 192:

One of the poorest societies, and yet one of the largest, was also from Cologne, the Burger-und Handwerker gesangverein. What rendered their performance the less pleasing, though in itself poor, was the fact, that two inferior compositions, both by the director of the society (W. Herx), were sung.
