The guests at the wedding of H.R.H. the Princess Louise and the Marquis of Lorne in Windsor - 21 March, 1871

from Life and Reminiscences of Sir George J. Elvey, page 207:

"Then they kneel together, man and wife, and as they rise, the sonorous waves of that lovely organ peal again into the air, a tender and pathetic, but most royal, musical blessing of Beethoven, admirably rendered by Dr. Elvey, and more expressive of the thought and prayers of those witnessing the spectacle than any words could well be. The voices of the Queen's choristers mingle with the organ with admirable effect.
