Bellamy : Haste, Celia, haste : Printable cover page
Composer: Richard Bellamy (?1743 - 1813)
Lyrics: Matthew Prior
From Bellamy's collection of glees published in 1789.
Bellamy was one of the most prominent basses of his day, appointed a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal (1771), a lay vicar of Westminster Abbey (1773), and a vicar choral of St Paul's Cathedral (1777), where he was also Master of the Choristers. He was dismissed from all his posts in 1800 for "great indecency" with some of the choirboys. "Drunkenness, I suppose, brought on a temporary insanity, foolishness! and beastliness!" according to R.J.S. Stevens.
