Mrs Donnellan et al. in Delville - 2 November, 1751

from Letter from Mrs Delany to Mrs Dewes, page 50:

Every evening as soon as prayers are over we go to the harpsichord, and to my playing Donnellan hums over the oratorios; and although her voice has not the force it had, it is very melodious, and her taste and manner so different from anything I meet with here that it gives me great pleasure.
