Amy Fay in Weimar - July, 1873

from Music-Study in Germany: The Classic Memoir of the Romantic Era, pages 235-236:

His [Liszt's] oratorio of Christus was brought out here this summer, and many strangers and celebrities came to hear it, Wagner among others. It was magnificent, and one of the noblest, and decidedly the grandest oratorio that I ever heard. I've never had time to write home about it, for I felt that it required a dissertation in itself to do it justice.
