William Beatty-Kingston in Seville - the 1860's

from Music and manners; personal reminiscences and sketches of character, page 378:

It was at Seville that I last saw and heard them all performed [song meoldies and dance tunes] by a very skilful troupe of Spanish minstrels, consisting of five men (vocalists and guitar-players) and three extraordinarily handsome girls, who did all the dancing, but sang not at all, and played upon no instrument but the castanets.
