- Edition notes: The flute part in D major has not been reproduced as the flute was a transposing instrument in the 18th Century, whereas now the flute need only follow the right hand staff of the harpsichord part.
First published: 1756
Description: An elegant setting of Jonson's poem with an entirely different melody from that used in the later setting by Callcott.
