Byrom's pasquinade on the rivalry between Handel and Bononcini (the concluding couplet sometimes attributed to Dean Swift), set as a glee, c.1780
Lyrics: James Byrom

Some say that Signor Bononcini,
When compared to Handel,
Is a mere ninny.
Others aver that to him,
Handel is only fit
To hold the candle.
Strange that such high disputes should be
'Twixt Tweedledum and Tweedledee.
