Composer: William Jackson (of Exeter) (1730 - 1803)
Lyrics: John Gay
Jackson was organist of Exeter Cathedral and a theorist on music. A friend of Thomas Gainsborough, he corresponded with him on the subject of aesthetics.
Here Jackson has made a joke that he used often: a "low art" nautical ballad by John Gay has been treated in an "high art" (cantata) style.
