Ignatz Moscheles in London - in the middle of 1833

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 196:

What a melancholy evening last Thursday, when I heard Pasta's 'Romeo'; she sang terribly out of tune. This great artiste, long past her prime, has lost her voice, and actually consents to barter her reputation for a heap of guineas; it shocks me.
