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; he also wrote glees in collaboration with Henry Harington, M.D. in Wells then Bath, and leading light of the Bath Harmonic Society.

Lyrics: Anon

Gentle Cupid, lend an ear,
Be propitious to my pray'r;
So may your extended sway
The whole universe obey.
Dear gentle Cupid, touch her heart,
Let Chloe feel the pleasing smart;
Then will I gladly hang my chain,
And never wish for liberty again.

John Broderip
(1719 - 1770)

Gentle Cupid, lend an ear
