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

 

I was at the oratorio of Judas Maccabeus (Frazi’s Benefit) at the Great Room in Dean Street Soho, twas very grand but the Messiah is finer, Frazi, Miss Young, Beard and Champness etc, etc, sung; and Stanley played a concerto on the organ; very fine!
