Written for public celebrations of St Cecilia's Day in Oxford and published 1742. The text used is part of Tate's Ode, first set by Purcell, H. as 'Come ye sons of art away'.
Lyrics: Nahum Tate

Strike the viol, touch the lute,
Wake the harp, inspire the flute.
Sing your patroness's praise,
In cheerful and harmonious lays.
