Kemp grew up in Exeter where he was a chorister under, and a pupil of, William Jackson. This glee comes from his collection of six glees, Op. 2, London, 1800.
Lyrics: Torquato Tasso trans. John Hoole

Ah cruel love, thou bane of every joy,
Whose pains and sweets alike our peace destroy;
Still equal woes from thee mankind endure,
Fatal thy wound, and fatal is the cure.
