Anne Louise Germaine de Staël-Holstein et al. in London, England - 27 March, 1814

from Diary of Mary Berry, 27 March 1814, page 7:

We went to Madame de Staël. Catalani had dined with her, and was still singing when we got there; that is to say, they made her sing French romances, without her knowing how to sing them, or how to pronounce them.
