Holcombe's song, first published c.1740, was adapted to use as a glee by William Hayes.
Lyrics: Charles Sackville, Earl of Dorset

When here, Lucinda, first we came,
Where Arno rolls his silver stream,
How blest the nymphs, the swains so gay,
Content inspired each rural lay.
The birds in livelier concert sung,
The grapes in thicker clusters hung,
All lookes as joy could never fail
Among the sweets of Arno's vale.
