Charles Burney in Milan - 22 July, 1770

from Music, men and manners in France and Italy, 1770 / Charles Burney, pages 53-4:

I was too soon for the service at the Duomo so went to a convent where I heard a nun sing divinely... after dinner went again to the Convent San Maria Madalina – heard the same motet by the same singer with double delight.
