Review of a Performance at Bath from The Times
Tuesday, May 3, 1887.
 
RECENT CONCERTS
(excerpt)

We may mention… an interesting concert also given last week by the Bath Philharmonic Society.

Under its founder and musical director, Mr. Albert Visetti, that society has during its brief existence gained for itself a prominent place among the musical associations of the West of England. The choir, made up of amateurs, consists of excellent materials, and Mr. Visetti has spared no pains in inspiring his singers with that genuine love of their task from which the best artistic results can alone be obtained.

The performance of Sullivan’s The Golden Legend satisfied not only a numerous audience but also the composer, who conducted his work in person.

The second part of the concert was ably conducted by Mr. Visetti, with the exception of a descriptive overture, “The Coronation,” written especially for the occasion by Signor Pieraccini.

The principal vocalists were Mdlle. Nordica, Miss Glenn, Mr. Lloyd, and Mr. Watkin Mills.
