Charles Burney in Naples - 1 November, 1770, in the morning

from Music, men and manners in France and Italy, 1770 / Charles Burney, page 186:

In the morning, being All Saints Day I went at least a couple of miles to the church of the Incurabili where I was told there would be good music but found it miserable. From hence to several others where I found only bad music ill performed.
