Michael Kelly in Venice - late 18th Century

from Reminiscences of Michael Kelly, page 187:

At the Theatre of St. Samuel there was a powerful comic opera ; at the head of it was my old friend Madame Storace ; her success was great indeed. Signor Vicenzo Martini, the celebrated Spanish composer, composed the opera ; his was a soul of melody, and melody is the rarest gift a composer can possess, and one which few attain to.
