in Leipzig - 1868

from Musings & memories of a musician, pages 23-24:

Already in the early part of the following year of 1868 I sang the part of "Hans Sachs " in Wagner's Mastersingers, performed for the first time in Leipsic by Carl Riedel, the great Wagner enthusiast, whose Choral Society was then justly celebrated.
