Maria Park issued her Set of Glees, Op. 3 by subscription in 1790. There is nothing in the cleffing of this piece to indicate that she expected performance by any other than the contemporary standard (all-male) forces. In deference to her gender, a transposed edition is provided to enable performance by female choirs.
Lyrics: John Dryden

Go tell Amynta, gentle swain,
That he who loves her loves in vain.
Thy tuneful sounds with numbers join;
Thy power will more prevail than mine.

A sigh, a tear, perhaps she'll give,
But love, O pity, cannot live;
Tell her that hearts for hearts were made,
And love with love is only paid.
