An instrumental arrangement of William Boyce's patriotic song written to celebrate British victories at sea in 1759. The song was perhaps even more popular during the French Revolutionay and Napoleonic Wars, with new sets of words being coined to celebrate contemporary victories, for example those of Nelson.
