Michael Kelly in Gaeta - late 18th Century

from Reminiscences of Michael Kelly, page 74:

Previous, to our going to Palermo, Aprile went to see his family at Abruzzo ; and at the same time to conduct a musical festival at Gaeta, and took me with him. The best professors in the kingdom were engaged, and I had the honour of singing a salve regina. The festival was most splendid, and had Aprile been the greatest potentate on earth, he could not have been more caressed by his towns-men than he was.
