There are a couple of different sources- one gives "A Song for ye Duke of Glosters birthday July ye 24th 1695" (RISM 800226627); the autograph is dated (by RISM?) to closer to 1689, however. The finished work might use material from an earlier (1689) manuscript, of course. Some sources give "song", others "ode".
Worldcat suggests no publication (other than the manuscript itself, and not a publication of a copy of it, either) earlier than 1949 or so when Novello published the overture above.
