Thomas Cooper et al. in The John Street Institution, Tottenham Court Road, London - 1848
from The Life of Thomas Cooper, Written by Himself, page 315:
During the stirring year of 1848, I kept on at my lecturing work, on Sunday evenings, at the John Street Institution. I had large audiences, to listen to history and foreign and home politics, mingled with moral instruction. One great charm of these evenings, for myself, was the music. There was a good organ, and I strove to direct the taste of the choir to Handel and Mozart and Haydn and Beethoven; and the result was that we soon had some thorough good chorus-singing.
