Edward Moore et al. in Warwick Chapel, London - 22 June, 1823

from Memoirs, Journal and Correspondence of Thomas Moore, page 89:

Before driving out, had gone with [Edward] Moore to Warwick Chapel, where we heard the latter part of the service, and most solemn and touching it was. It seemed to come with more effect over me, after the restless and feverish life I have been leading; and brought tears instantly from the very depths of my heart. Music is the true interpreter of the religious feelings; nothing written or spoken is equal to it.
