Richard Edgcumbe in Westminster Abbey - 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 275:

[…] the recitative, “Ye sacred priests,” and air, “Farewell, ye limpid streams,” performed by Miss Stephens, who was once more within her compass, and sung them with great sweetness; perhaps with not quite so much spirit as might be wished in the, last lively movement, but on the whole very well.
