Richard Edgcumbe in England - early 19th Century

from Musical Reminiscences: Containing an Account of Italian Opera in England, From 1773. The Fourth Edition, Continued to the Present Time, and Including The Festival in Westminster Abbey., page 103:

Tramezzani’s debut in it [Sidagero, by Guglielmi] was most successful, the music very beautiful, and his performance, especially as an actor, most admirable. He had a very handsome person, and was full of animation and feeling. His voice was of the sweetest quality, of that rich, touching, cremona tone peculiar to the Italians, and his singing, if not of the first order, or very scientific, was always pleasing, and full of expression.
