The Tyrolese Melodies : Arranged for One or Four Voices with an Accompaniment for the Piano Forte (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Tyrolese Melodies: Arranged for One or Four Voices With an Accompaniment for the Piano Forte After the fatigues of a sixty hours passage, we safely arrived at the Custom-house Stairs, and found ourselves at last in London; where the natural apprehension we had been led to entertain, of our exciting too boisterous a notice by our strange appearance, soon entirely subsided, and we ventured to take our way through the streets, without any other inconvenience than the rather vivacious attendance of a numerous troop of boys. Indescribable is the impression which we received by the sight of the British Metropolis, as its magnitude and seemingly inexhaustible variety progressively opened upon our view In our subsequent surveys, the finer and more open parts of the town not less astonished us by their superiority of aspect and convenience than by their immense extent; the parks, and their contiguous buildings, in particular, calling forth our especial admiration. But what shall we say of the unbounded goodness and liberality which, since our appearance in this great city, have honored and encouraged the humble efforts of the stranger Minstrels beyond their most sanguine expectations? Kind hearts will appreciate for us the sentiments we so imperfectly express; but never shall we be able sufficiently to evince the gratitude we owe to the illustrious and noble characters, who have deigned to regard us with so much condescension and generosity, or the feelings with which we offer to our many excellent friends, and the British public in general, the heartfelt assurances of a mingled thankfulness and respect, which, however subjected to the power of time or distance, can never pass away.
