Michael Kelly in Salzburg - February, 1787

from Reminiscences of Michael Kelly, pages 275-276:

The Archbishop sent one of his attendants to invite Signora Storace and her party to hear a concert at his palace; we felt ourselves highly honoured, and, of course, went. The Archbishop was a very fine looking man, particularly galant and attentive to the ladies, of whom there was a splendid show ; it was conceived that he was very partial to the English, and English manners. The music was chiefly instrumental, admirably performed ; the band numerous and excellent.
