Lyrics by Charles Dibdin.

When Haydn was not around, there was always Charles Dibdin (1740-1814) who regaled London with his songs at the same period. Davies's arrangement of four of them makes an amused but also affectionate picture of the man. The vocallines are essentially unchanged, but the accompaniment is sometimes teased towards new metres and harmonies.
Score. Duration c. 16 mins.
