Maria Linley was the daughter of Thomas Linley the elder, a professional singer (like her sister Elizabeth) who died tragically young (like so many of her siblings}. The composer of this glee is unrecorded, but is more likely to be her father and not her brother William, who subsequently earned the greater reputation as a writer of glees.

Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

She's gone, she's gone, she's gone.
Lament the fair in songs of woe,
Your notes diffuse around;
Whose warbled strains
Flow in elegance of sound.
Ye youths of Britain,
Heard ye not the knell?
A parent's loss deplore
Tho. Sad their melancholy tale to tell,
Maria is no more.

Anon
(c.1784)
