It was not till the latter part of the second concert when Mr. Turle, the organist of the Abbey, took his seat at it, and accompanied Israel in Egypt, that it was heard with proper effect. Then, indeed, its deep tones were drawn forth and its full chords filled up the harmony and completely gratified the ear.
