William Gardiner in Derbyshire - early 19th Century

from Music and Friends: Or, Pleasant Recollections of a Dilettante, pages 484-5:

One evening he [Anacreon Moore] sat down to the piano-forte, and asked me to listen to a song he had just written, 'Those evening bells.' He performed it with exquisite taste ; I thought it one of his happiest effusions, and a composition that could only have emanated from himself, in whom the poet and the musician were combined.
