At the date of publication of his first (and only extant) set of glees (c.1799) Scott was deputy organist at the Chapel Royal and at Westminster Abbey.

Lyrics: Anon

How dearly thro' the grove
At eve I love to rove,
And listen to the plaintive tale
Warbled by the nightingale.


Sweet bird of solitude,
No wand'ring footstep rude
Thy tranquility molest.
I'll guard off each unwelcome guest;
How dearly thro' the grove
At eve I love to rove,
And listen to the plaintive tale
Warbled by the nightingale.


Sweet mourner, let me join
A lover's plaint with thine.
Nought can calm the frequent sigh
Like thy plaintive harmony;
How dearly thro' the grove
At eve I love to rove,
And listen to the plaintive tale
Warbled by the nightingale.

John Scott
(c.1775 - 1815)

How dearly thro' the grove
