Richard Edgcumbe in England - 1826

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., pages 171-2:

 In the [opera Tancredi], her [Pasta's] manner of singing Di tanti palpiti is much better than that of any other performer of the part: she sings it much slower, thereby doing away, in a great degree, with its country-dance-like character.
