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

Haste, ye sister pow'rs of song;
Hasten from the shady grove,
Where the river rolls along
Sweetly to the voice of love;
Where, indulging mirthful pleasures,
Light you press the flow'ry green,
And from Flora's blooming treasures
Cull the wreath for Fancy's queen;
Where your gently flowing numbers,
Floating on the fragrant breeze,
Sink the soul in pleasing slumbers
On the downy bed of ease.
