Duchess of Devonshire et al. in Rome - 5 November, 1819, at night

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 5 November 1819, page 64:

Went in the evening to the Duchess of Devonshire’s, where I heard Mad. Renaudin sing; the most celebrated musical person they have; and her singing is certainly sweet and tasteful, but the things she selected were not pretty: compositions, I rather think, of her master, Crescembini [sic].
