Dr Claver Morris in Wells Cathedral Close Hall, Wells, Somerset, England - 6 August, 1719

from The Diary of a West Country Physician, A. D. 1684-1726, page 71:

Later I was at our Musick-Meeting; and Mr Ducket of Caune [Calne] in Wiltshire play’d on a Flute one song with us: But Mr Hill’s Harpsichord being near a note below Consort Pitch, and no sure Hand performing the Trebles (being only young Ladds of Wells and Shepton,) our Musick was very mean.
