Listeners to music - 1802
from Letter from Anna Seward to Thomas Park, Esq., 14 June 1802, page 33:
It is with poetry as with music. The sublime harmonies and the melodies of coyly elegant simplicity, please few in comparison with the numbers who are delighted with the Blue Bells of Scotland, and all such sort of airs.
