From Warren's third collection of canons, catches and glees. The Monthly Review, July 1767 reviewed a similar collection and mentioned this particular glee in the following terms: "The mere reader will doubtless be disappointed if he expects to find any degree of entertainment in this sing-song collection above that which he ordinarily meets with in the production of our garden-muses. As an example, what can be more namby-pambyish than the following glee?"

Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Fair the op'ning lily blows,
Sweet the fragrant citron grows,
Which perfumes the eastern grove.
Say! Can aught with these compare?
Oh, much fairer, sweeter far,
Bloom the charms of her I love.

Thomas Arne
(1710 - 1778)
