Duke of Dorset et al. in Dublin - 22 January, 1752
Last Saturday we were invited to the Primate's to hear music. D. D., Donnellan, and I went a little before 7; it was the Duke of Dorset's birthday, and the entertainment given in honour of it....Our music was chiefly Italian - the Stabat Mater, sung by Guadagni (whom you heard sing in Mr. Handel's oratorios) and Mrs. Oldmixon; Dubourg the principal violin: it was well performed and some of the duet parts are very pretty. They had more music after we left them, but we staid till nearly ten, which was a late hour for us.
