Charles Burney in Venice - 3 August, 1770

from Music, men and manners in France and Italy, 1770 / Charles Burney, page 73:

The instant I got to the inn a band of musicians consisting of 2 good fiddles a violoncello and female voice stopt under the windows and performed in such a manner as would have made people stare in England, but here they were as little attended to as coalmen or oyster women are with us.
