in Leicester - 1774

from Music and Friends: Or, Pleasant Recollections of a Dilettante, page 302:

In 1774, so low was the taste in sentimental music, that I heard Giardini's finest concerto on the violin, with the Jolly young Waterman, played as a finish, which moved the audience with unspeakable delight.
