Charles Burney in Viterbo - 19 September, 1770

from Music, men and manners in France and Italy, 1770 / Charles Burney, page 128:

It was the beginning of a fair at Viterbo and there was a song at the inn door sung dialogue-wise by a man and woman accompanied by the man on a tamborine - pleasing enough. It cost me half a paul.
