“. . . Rossini’s Mass [sic] was brilliantly executed at St. Anne’s [sic] Church on 8th Street. . . . Dachauer performed on the organ with the skill that has placed him so highly in the esteem of music-lovers, and Mlle Octavie Gomien sang several pieces with that great voice, so noble and so abundantly placed, that puts her in the first rank of sacred-music singers.”
