AUTHOR: T., J. 
TITLE: Notes of a Musical Tourist. 
SERIES: Harmonicon, Vol. 8, No. 1 (Jan 1830), pp. 5-7.
PUBL. DATA: To the Editor of the Harmonicon. Edinburgh, Nov. 23, 1829. [... I heard likewise a MS. Mass by Seb. Bach, in the severe style that characterises the works of that great man. Some of the choruses are wonderfully fine,--abounding in superb crashes of harmony, or in the intricacies of strict fugue. The solos, trios, and quartetts, likewise, partook of the same elevated character. I was so struck with the exquisite beauty and pathos of one of the quartetts, a Crucifixus, that I procured a copy of it; and I now send it to you for the pages of the Harmonicon, if at all within the design of the work, as affording at once a specimen of Bach's wonderful powers of harmony (the whole movement being written on four bars), and of what the students are capable of performing. ...]
