This glee gained a Catch Club prize medal in 1785.
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

The nightingale, who tunes her warbling notes so sweet
'Midst flowers ne'er presumes to fix her mournful seat;
Melodiously she sings while hawthorns pierce her breast;
Her voice sweet echo rings, and Nature lulls to rest.
