Listening tohide composers
|Date/Time||23 March, 1884, 07:00 PM|
|Listening Environment||in the company of others, indoors, in public|
Henry Croswell (1840–93) kept a record of his visits to churches in London over a period of more than twelve years (1872–85). He made methodical notes about the number of clergy, the churchmanship, the congregation, the sermon and the church architecture, as well as commenting on the music that he heard (the organ, the hymns and the choir). The above listening experience has been extracted from one of these records. This record is unnumbered in the transcript, but its position within the whole is no. 381. The Croswell family had visited the Chapel Royal, Whitehall, the same morning (see record no. 380, LE no. 1553015061791)
