Charles Burney in Rome - 29 September, 1770, at night

from Music, men and manners in France and Italy, 1770 / Charles Burney, page 139:

In the evening went with Mr. Leighton, by appointment, to Mazzanti’s where I had a fine dish of music and saw all his curiosities – he sings in a very rich taste, but has now but a thread of a voice.
