Little is known of James Radcliffe beyond his description of himself on the title-page of his set of glees (pub. c.1790) as being "of Worcester Cathedral". He was a Lay Clerk there from 1780, but was suspended for absenteeism in 1791, and permanently dismissed in 1793.

Lyrics: Nicholas Rowe

Despairing beside a clear stream,
A shepherd forsaken was laid,
And whilst a false nymph was his theme,
A willow supported his head.

The wind that blew over the plain
To his sigh with a sob did reply;
And the brook in return to his pain
Ran mournfully murmuring by.

James Radcliffe
(fl.1790)

Despairing beside a clear stream
