Publicity and Reviews: 

The Musical Times, March 1, 1873
"Professor Oakeley gave an organ recital on the 11th ult., when the Music Class-room was rather inconveniently crowded.  Every number was delightfully rendered, and Beethoven's Adagio was loudly re-demanded and cordially responded to.  The customary meed of respect to the memory of the founder of the Music Chair was given by the audience rising to their feet during the performance of General Reid's well-known march.  The concluding number of the programme (Mendelssohn's "Marche Funèbre") was appropriately and feelingly dedicated to the memory of the late Professor Pierson."
