from Music and Friends: Or, Pleasant Recollections of a Dilettante, pages 7-8:
Mr. Bates, while at Gumley, came over several times to the Three Cranes Inn, where, with a borrowed harpsichord, and the assistance of the Rev. Mr. Burnaby on the violin, and Mr. Tilley on the violoncello, the choruses in Jephtha were first rehearsed; for that oratorio had not been performed before its introduction to the public at Leicester.
