Thomas Linley's setting of Ariel's song was composed with an orchestral accompaniment as part of his incidental music for "The Tempest". This reduced version was issued posthumously by his brother William in his own collection of Shakespearean settings.

Lyrics: William Shakespeare

While you here do snoring lie,
Open-eyed conspiracy his time doth take.
If of life you keep a care,
Shake off slumber and beware:
Awake, awake!

Thomas Linley
(the younger, 1756 - 1778)
