Composer: James Hook (1746 - 1827)
Lyrics: Mr Vint
Written for performance at Vauxhall in 1794, as part of the national celebrations of Lord Howe's victory; William Darley was the first singer.
The battle was the largest naval engagement of the French Revolutionary Wars. Whilst not the conclusive victory celebrated (both nations (with reason) claimed a victory), it made Howe a national hero.
