Richard Edgcumbe - 1834

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 265:

The first was an anthem by Sir John Stevenson, a very moderate composition, sung by Phillips, whose talents were thrown away upon it; the other a song of Handel’s from Joshua, “Oh! who can tell,” which deserved to be better sung.
