Peter Hawker in Monastery of Jeronimos, Lisbon - 24 December, 1808, at night
from Journal entry, 24 December 1808, page 5:
This being Christmas eve, I went at midnight to visit the convent of St. Jeronimo. Although no advocate for the pomp and ostentation of popish ceremonials, the service was performed with so much solemnity that it was impossible entirely to withhold admiration. The organ was peculiarly fine, and in very good hands: the friar who played it evinced the greatest skill in his performance of the anthems.
