Misc. Comments

From the book, 12 English Songs Serious and Humourous With the Thorough Bass for the Harpsichord set to Musick by the New-invented Method of Composing with the Spruzzarino.
This song was apparently written as a response to the attack made on Gunn by William Hayes (anonymously) in The Art of Composing Music by a Method Entirely New).
