The Maid of Artois-Finale

According to Heyward John St. Leger in his Reminiscences of Balfe Malibran was not satisfied with Balfe's original finale, so she had him rewrite it and gave such a rousing performance of that aria opening night that she received a double encore.  The song is "The Rapture Swelling Through My Breast."
