“The mammoth attraction of the metropolis is the Great Harmonic meeting held at the House of Commons. . . . Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.  Today, all former efforts will be surpassed: the new baritone (Mr. Edwards) will make his bow to our patrons.  Braham, Field, Rouse, Lyons, Smith, Rist &c. will as usual overdo the pathetic and burlesque the comic.”
