Jesse Jackson et al. in Whalley - May, 1874

from My Life and Times, or An Old Man's Memories, pages 50–51:

On the Sunday, I along with my father-in-law, went to the Parish Church, Mr. Whittaker the old vicar officiated at the service. I don't remember much of the sermon, but the music were of very fine order. The Choir sang Old Calcutta and several others with great force. The anthem was nicely rendered by the choir and organ, Mr. Frodson, the organist was a very skilful player and his brother sang the Bass Solo, and the choir joined in fine style.
