The singers, or, as they are now called, vocalists, at these [Rotunda] concerts were numerous ; among them were a Miss Jameson, a pupil of Doctor Arne, who sung " The Soldier tired" with much applause; and Mrs. Cramer, (first wife of the celebrated leader, and mother of John Cramer and F. Cramer, the esteemed successor of his father, celebrated for his performance on the piano-forte, and compositions for that instrument ;) a beautiful woman, a charming singer, and a distinguished professional favourite of Tenducci, Leoni, and Rauzzini.
