from Music, men and manners in France and Italy, 1770 / Charles Burney, page 142:

Then to the D. of Dorset’s concert – he had the girl to sing this evening who was expected on Friday. She has a fine firm voice, and a pretty way of singing; but her shake is very weak and imperfect; and she is moreover a very young musician.
