Soprano and sister of Mary Ann Davies. A student of Hasse in Vienna during the late 1760s, Cecilia Davies appeared in his Ruggiero at Naples in January 1772. The family - including her sister Mary Ann - returned to England in the 1770s, undertook a further tour of the Continent between 1779 and 1780, after which her career appears to have faltered although she is known to have performed in London in 1787 and 1791. Mozart and his father met with the Davies sisters in Milan in September 1771 although it seems clear from Leopold's letter describing their meeting, that they had previously met, probably in Vienna in 1768.
