CHAPTER III
PRIVATE LETTERS 1842-1843

To Miss Rose Paynter.
[GORE HOUSE], Saturday Night [June 1842].
DEAR ROSE,
We have not been to the opera this evening, as Lord Pembroke and the Duc de Guiche came to dinner. He is on a visit to Lord Tankerville,l but has the good taste to prefer the society he finds here, particularly D'Orsay's. D'Orsay was never in higher spirits or finer plumage. Yesterday we went at two o'clock to hear Rossini's Stabat Mater.' Certainly the air sung by Staudigl, Pro Peccatis, is very sublime. It would be presumption in me to say anything about the composition. I think it less simple, and feel it to be less affecting than some I have heard in Italy. Many great masters, I believe, have tried their hands at it, and several of these are thought to have succeeded.
After the Stabat Mater we went to look out for

1 Lady Tankerville (nee de Granzmorzt) was the aunt of the Duc de Guiche. She was sent to England, when a young girl during the Reign of Terror, became the intimate friend of Lady Palmerston, and died in 1865.
2 There was a performance of Rossini's Stabat Mater at the Prince's Theatre on June 2, 1842, when, says the Athenceuzn, "the beautiful singing of `Idlle. Lutzer, Mdlle. Pacini, Signor Mario, Herr Staudigl, and avery steady chorus, was set off by an orchestra at once powerful and delicate, well conducted by Signor Gabussi." Mention is also made of "the bass air, Pro peccatis, in itself among the finest modern songs ofits class-how much more so when sung by a Staudigl."-Athenvuna, JuIy 2, 1842.
