Charles Burney in Rome - 16 November, 1770

from Music, men and manners in France and Italy, 1770 / Charles Burney, page 207:

After dinner to Crispi's academia - I arrived late - his new quartetos were performing, and he was so obliging as to make the performers begin again and go thro' with the whole 6. I think these compositions have great merit and are superior to any of his other productions.
