Richard Edgcumbe in England - late 18th 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 148:

Mrs. Sheridan to an angelic face […] added an angelic voice, of so sweet and delightful a tone and quality that it went at once to the heart; and, combined with her touching expression, produced an effect almost heavenly, and moved every hearer. I heard her more than once when I was very young, and the recollection has never been effaced.
