Went to St. Peter’s to hear the music in the Capello del Choro, where eight cardinals were present. We saw their entrance in procession, very picturesque from the church. The music was fine—a double choir—and sung by the soprani of the Pope’s chapel. Later, we walked in the church; it was full of people, and decorated and lighted more than usual, on account of its being the fête of the consecration of the church. The effect of the light around the canopy; the processions which were at the confessional of St. Peter's, below; the music, which was always going on, and seeming to float in the air; the groups of people in all the different parts of this enormous edifice, and the rays of a brilliant setting sun which entered the windows, made altogether such a striking effect that we could not tear ourselves away.
