from The diary of Virginia Woolf. Vol.5, 1936-41, page 153:

"...The choir's beautiful.  I can't get a sitting from which you can hear.  I feel it infra dig rushing with the crowd.  The crowd hasn't reached - I've just got to sit still - I'm having a service - I hear the prayers the young men the music."
