Sir Francis Leggatt Chantrey et al. in the papal chapel, Rome - 1 November, 1819
from Diary of Thomas Moore, 1 November 1819, page 58:
This being All Saints’ Day, went with Sir T. Lawrence and Chantrey to the Pope’s private chapel; the scene very new to me and very striking. The assemblage of cardinals, the singularity of the ceremonies, the venerable weak old age of the Pope (who looked like a dying man in a rich dressing gown), and some parts of the music, affected my mind considerably.
