A minuet from the overture to Berenice, redrafted for use as a glee by Thomas Billington c.1790.
Lyrics: Anon

Farewell now, ye crystal streams,
Ye purling rills adieu;
Where love was all my theme for him,
For him who proves untrue.
Farewell, farewell, ye whistling reeds,
Soft scenes of tender love;
Farewell, ye bright enamelled meads,
Where I was wont to rove.

after Handel
Farewell now, ye crystal streams

(S.A.B.)
