Charles Burney in Bologna - 24 August, 1770
After dinner an itinerant band stopt under my window who executed several sinfonies and single movements extreamly well – ‘twas the best I had heard here. However the music of the churches here, which the common people hear every day, is a good school for them and enables them all to sing with taste and expression of the right sort.
