This glee was presented to the Catch Club by Mrs [Elizabeth] Sheridan (nee Linley), presumably as a memorial to her prematurely deceased brother. It was printed for the Club in Warren's 25th (1786) collection.
Lyrics: "The second chapter of Solomon's song" (anonymous verse paraphrase)

Hark, hark, the birds melodious sing,
And sweetly usher in the Spring.
Close by his fellow sits the dove,
And gently whispers her his love.
