Anna Seward in Lichfield - early December, 1795

from Letter from Anna Seward to Right Hon. Lady Eleanor Butler, 9 December 1795, page 138:

We had a charming public concert last week, at which Mr Saville favoured the company with one song, of never-excelled grace and power. It was a tender amoroso air, succeeded by a disdainful bravura. It is set by Bach, and quite an opera song.
