Dr John Moore in Basilica della Santa Casa, Loreto - late 18th Century
from A View of Society and Manners in Italy. Volume 1, page 304:
Above a hundred masses are daily said in this Chapel, and in the church in which it stands. The music we heard in the Chapel was remarkably fine. A certain number of the chaplains are eunuchs, who perform the double duty of singing the offices in the choir, and saying masses at the altar.
