Sacred music in general has been much esteemed and cultivated since the introduction of Oratorios by Handel, and has been executed with great excellence by performers of our own country, among whom Mr. Harrison was long a favourite, and justly; for he had one of the softest, most mellow tenor voices I ever heard, and a chaste style of singing: his only fault was want of energy and animation, which made his performance rather dull and heavy. Mr. Bartleman, who is fresh in every one’s recollection, was equally admired for his fine bass, or baritone voice, and for his masterly manner of singing.
