Charles Burney in Church of St. Laurence, Venice - 9 August, 1770
... I went to hear music at the church of St. Laurence. It was composed and under the direction of Sacchini – a great croud and heat. In the former I lost my handkerchief and in the latter my patience. I suffered too much to be easily pleased, and the music seemed more common than that I had heard before of this author.
