Mary Berry et al. in Basilica della Santissima Annunziata del Vastato, Genoa - 23 March, 1817, in the morning
from Diary of Mary Berry, 23 March 1817, page 119:
In the morning went to the Church of Annunciata, where the King and Royal Family attended Mass. There was nothing extraordinary prepared for them. There were chairs and cushions before the altar. The Guards’ band played, but it was operatic music instead of sacred music. There was not a single lady of distinction present, though usually there are many at this church.
