Paxton : O sing unto my roundelay : Choir offer
Composer: Stephen Paxton (1734 - 1787)
Lyrics: Thomas Chatterton
Published in 1782, Paxtons's setting utilises a tune also used by William Shield in his opera Rosina of the same year (The morn returns in saffron drest). Whether one borrowed from the other, or both shared a common source (probably North British) I have been unable to trace.
Choir offer: 2.00 euro for 9 copies
