Holder described himself in the frontispiece of his collection of glees, Op. 6 as organist of Bungay, Suffolk.

Lyrics: William Collins

How sleep the brave who sink to rest,
By all their country's wishes blest;
Spring, with dewy fingers cold,
Returns to deck their hallowed mould;
She there shall dress a sweeter sod
Than fancy's feet have ever trod.
By fairy hands their knell is rung,
By forms unseen their dirge is sung.
There honour comes, a pilgrim grey,
To bless the turf that wraps their clay.
And freedom shall a while repair
To dwell a weeping hermit there.
