Mary Berry in London, England - 7 May, 1811

from Diary of Mary Berry, 7 May 1811, pages 475–476:

Dined at Rogers’s. After dinner, Thomas Moore sung a good deal—his own Melalogue—a thing with words of his, set to old music, which had been rehearsed on the stage at Dublin—something in the style of Collins’s Ode. I thought little of it, although he both rehearses the words and plays the music admirably.
