Holder described himself in the frontispiece of his collection of glees, Op. 6 as organist of Bungay, Suffolk.
Lyrics: William Collins

Come Pity, by Fancy's aid,
Even now my thoughts, relenting maid,
Thy temple's pride design.

There let me oft, retired by day,
In dreams of passion melt away,
Allowed with thee to dwell.

There waste the mournful lamp of light,
Till, virgin, thou again delight
To hear a British shell.
