Guests of Comte de Flahault et al. in Paris - 23 December, 1819, at night

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 23 December 1819, pages 92–93:

Dined at Comte de Flahault’s. […]  Music in the evening. Paer and his daughter sung; he in the buffo style, and very well; seems a fine, hearty fellow. One of the things sung by him and her and Flahault was an air that they sing to the bagpipes at Rome in Christmas time. It is harmonised by Paer, and is very pretty. I must have it for my National Melodies.
