Description: John Broderip was perhaps the most prominent member of a dynasty of west country musicians. He was organist at Wells Cathedral (succeeding his father) and published psalmody and glees. This glee comes from his collection of six (Op. 5), c.1770. Cunningham's elegy was to William ShenstoneLink to the English Wikipedia article, poet and pioneer practitioner of landscape gardening. Thomas Arne also set a portion of the elegy as a glee: see Elegy on the death of Mr. Shenstone (Thomas Arne).
