Garret Wesley, 1st Earl of Mornington (in the Irish peerage) is today remembered not so much for his glees as for his siring of the Duke of Wellington. First Professor of Music at Trinity College, Dublin, he won the Catch Club's prize medal in 1779 with this glee.
Lyrics: William Shenstone

Here in cool grot and mossy cell
We rural fays and fairies dwell;
Though rarely seen by mortal eye,
When the pale moon, ascending high,
Darts through yon lines her quiv'ring beams;
We frisk it near these crystal streams.
Her beams, reflected from the wave,
Afford the light our revels crave;
The turf, with daisies 'broidered o'er
Exceeds we wot the Parian floor;
Nor yet for artful strains we call,
But listen to the waterfall.
