John Courtney in Cambridge - 17 May, 1759

from Music and Society in Eighteenth-Century Yorkshire, page 128:


The principal singers were Miss Young, Master Soaper, Messrs Hudson, Champness and his brother who is a pensioner of our college. The instrumental part too very full and fine. I heard Messiah before at Foundling Hospital, though this here was very grand, yet still that was rather finer.
