Georg Henschel in Wrocław - the 1860's
from Musings & memories of a musician, page 16:
[A]ll of a sudden one fine day, coming to breakfast and bidding my father and mother good-morning, the "good," still in tenor, was followed by a "morning" in what seemed to me [Sir George Henschel] the deepest bass voice ever heard. So that dream was dispelled, gone for ever, and I nothing but an ordinary basso.
