Ignatz Moscheles in London - 1845

from Recent Music and Musicians, page 314:

We had at the Antient Concert a 'Concerto by Emilio del Cavaliere,' composed in the year 1600, for the violino francese, chitarra, teorbo, arpa, organo, violino, etc. The well known 'Romanesca of the 15th Century' reminded me of hoop-petticoats and powder.
