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: Ambrose Phillips

Breathe soft ye winds, ye waters gently flow;
Shield her ye trees, ye flowers around her blow.
Ye swains, I beg you pass in silence by;
My love in yonder vale asleep doth lie.
