Holder described himself in the frontispiece of his collection of glees, Op. 6 as organist of Bungay, Suffolk.
Lyrics: Robert Bacon

With thee, well pleased, I wont to rove
To sunny hill or shady grove;
Oft as the sun, in western sky,
Had tinged the clouds with crimson dye;
From thence to view with conscious pride.
'Midst charming views, remote and wide,
Some pleasing scenes of rural life,
Secure from envy, hate and strife;
Whilst thou with winning smiles would'st say:
"Such shall be thine some future day".
