Ignatz Moscheles in Manchester - 20 September, 1836

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 229:

She sang so bewitchingly, on the 20th of September, that the audience boisterously called for an encore. Malibran, already in a very dangerous state, and one requiring absolute rest and cessation from work, summoned all her remaining energies; after repeating her song, and her inimitable shake on the high C, she fainted away and became unconscious.
