Anna Seward in Shrewsbury - October, 1790, in the morning

from Letter from Anna Seward to Mrs Martin, 27 October 1790, page 37:

I ventured to one of the morning music festivals at Shrewsbury, and heard Mr Saville open the Messiah with a pathos, an energy, and a grace that none ever excelled, and which I never heard equalled.
