In this too the first man’s part was performed by Babbini, of whom, notwithstanding the favourable report I had heard of him, I cannot say much in praise. He might be a good singer, as far as knowledge of music could make him one, but he was unequal to producing much effect, from the weakness of his voice, which it seemed a painful effort to him to exert.
