The Remainder of this part [of a concert of various sacred vocal music] was all Latin. First, a song of Haydn's, from his fifth service, by Grisi. This too was a disjointed sentence from Gloria, "quoniam tu solus" almost nonsense without the context. Of Grisi’s performance enough has been said to show it was extremely moderate: her attempt at a shake was miserable. The air was a kind of bravura, a style ill adapted to the words.
