Thomas Moore in Paris - 7 August, 1821

from Memoirs, Journal and Correspondence of Thomas Moore, page 264:

Dined with Rogers and his sister at Beauvilliers’; they went to the Français afterwards, and I to “Otello:” fine effects of harmony in this opera, and a few touches of feeling, such as Otello’s “Si, dopo lei morrò,” and the scene where Desdemona hears the gondolier singing, “Nessun maggior dolore:” this whole scene very romantically imagined.
