Samuel Pepys in Whitehall - 28 September, 1668

from Diary of Samuel Pepys, 28 September 1668 , page 947:

So I to Whitehall, and there all the evening on the Queen's side; and it being a most summerlike day and a fine warm evening, the Italians came in a barge under the leads before the Queen's drawing-room, and so the Queen and ladies went out and heard it for almost an hour; and it was endeed very good together but yet there was one voice that alone did appear considerable, and that was Seignor Joanni.
