Thomas Ryan - in the middle of the 1800's

from Recollections of an old musician, page 79:


The next evening, in the same hall, in a Handel and Haydn concert, [John Hatton] conducted a performance of the Elijah. The singer of the title role was suddenly indisposed and unable to sing. Mr. Hatton, through the entire performance, sang the part of “ Elijah,”—turning around to face the audience when singing, yet continuing to conduct the forces. He sang the music in artistic style and with a good, full voice.
