Michael Kelly in Naples - late 18th Century

from Reminiscences of Michael Kelly, pages 49-50:

The house I frequented with the greatest pleasure, was that of La Signora Moretti. She was a very charming person, and (which was not her least recommendation to me) an excellent judge of music, and a good singer and performer on the piano-forte. I frequently had the pleasure of meeting there the celebrated composer, Cimarosa, who had been the favourite scholar of my master, Finaroli. It was a great treat to hear him sing some of his comic songs, replete with humour and taste, accompanying himself.
