Charles Burney in Villa Pamphili, Rome - 11 October, 1770, at night

from Music, men and manners in France and Italy, 1770 / Charles Burney, page 153:

In the evening at a charming concert, to which I was invited by the D. of Dorset, there was an excellent German flute player from Saxony, a good tenor singer from Naples, Torelli Veronese, and the Mignatrice. They sung songs and duets most exquisitely, accompanied by Celestini, Corri etc.
