Published London, 1802. Horsley was an enthusiastic early-adopter of the metronome: tempo markings are his own.
Lyrics: James Thomson

Etherial race, inhabitants of air,
Who hymn your god amid the secret grove,
Ye unseen beings, to my harp repair,
And raise majestic strains, or melt in love.
Let me, ye wandering spirits of the wind,
Who, as wild fancy prompts you, touch the string,
Smit with your theme, be in your chorus joined,
For 'til you cease my muse forgets to sing.
