My friend Richard Hudson of New Laithe Farm, paid a visit to York Minster on purpose to see the great organ, with wonder and surprise, he looked up, throwing his mind back 50 years - saying to himself, Ah! the Augmented choir of that date - they are all gone, but the great organ remains there still. He told me of an old friend who was at the “Great Festival” of 1828, when “Handel's Dettingen Te Deum” was being performed - when after the “Introduction of the Symphony” and all the choir joined in the full chorus – “We praise thee O God,” - the shock was so great that over a dozen ladies fell to the ground in fits - and an old country organist was found afterwards rambling about in the fields, scarcely knowing where he was, or what had come over him.
