Richard Edgcumbe in England - mid 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., pages 204-5:

Wearied as I was I could not help staying a part of it [one act of the Barbiere], to hear her [Sontag] sing Rode’s Variations, which she did with astonishing neatness and accuracy ; but after all, it is an instrumental, not a vocal, piece of music.
