Kevin Crossley-Holland et al. in Chartres Cathedral - August, 1954, at night
from The Hidden Roads: A Memoir of Childhood, pages 212–213:
On the way home, we visited Vézelay and Chartres, where my father took me to a late-night concert in the cathedral (beginning, I noted, at 9.15 p.m.) of trios by Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Lalo. We didn’t get back to our hotel until after 11 p.m. I felt grown-up.
