Richard Edgcumbe in England - 1832

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 210:

The other first woman, Tosi, had been greatly admired in Italy, but she was passée, and her voice grown thin and uncertain in its intonation. […] I heard her once, at a private concert, as also Mariani, which latter had certainly a good voice, and was reckoned a good singer.
