Anne Seymour Damer in Seville Cathedral - between 6 March, 1791 and 10 March, 1791

from Letter from Anne Seymour Damer to Mary Berry, 19 March 1791, page 338:

The cathedral I think very fine; it is gloomy, and the Gothic architecture simple; full of the most beautiful windows of painted glass. I happened by chance to hear some good music there, which as it was by chance was the more striking—for, if I am to be dressed, stuck up, and stuffed up to hear or see anything—adieu all effect for me!
