Richard Edgcumbe in Westminster Abbey - 1834

from Musical Reminiscences: Containing an Account of Italian Opera in England, From 1773. The Fourth Edition, Continued to the Present Time, and Including The Festival in Westminster Abbey., page 283:

Both these unrivalled and inimitable productions [‘Worthy is the Lamb’ and ‘Hallelujah’], and indeed all the other chorusses, some of them yielding but little to these in grandeur, were extremely well performed; and on this department, on this day, the highest praise may be bestowed.
