John Westcott in Portugal - 1811
[T]he Commanding officer of the 26th regiment took the band of his regiment to play at the nunnery…most of the officers were there, several local notables attended too. Some of the nuns sang and the band played several Portuguese and Spanish airs. The singing was delightful.
