Thomas Moore in Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, Florence - 17 October, 1819
from Diary of Thomas Moore, 17 October 1819, page 37:
From thence to the church of the Annunziata: heard mass sung, which was very fine. Whether it he my popish blood or my poetical feelings, nothing gives me more delight than the “pomp and circumstance” of a mass in so grand a church, accompanied by fine music and surrounded by such statuary and such paintings; it is a most elevating spectacle.
