Rauzzini : Jervis and Duncan, or The Year 'Ninety Seven : Printable cover page
Composer: Venanzio Rauzzini (1746 - 1810)
Lyrics: William Meyler
A song of rejoicing at the events of 1797, a critical year for Britain in the French Revolutionary Wars. It is not clear whether it was intended for public performance (at a Bath concert, perhaps with a soprano soloist) or (perhaps more likely) at a gathering of the Bath Harmonic Society, for a male solo and chorus.
William Meyler, a successful and influential Bath bookseller and publisher, was a fellow-member of Rauzzini's in the Bath Harmonic Society. He was more active than other Bath residents in the Revolutionary Wars, serving as secretary to the Bath branch of the Association for Preserving Liberty, Property and the Constitution of Great Britain. A similar collaboration dating from 1789 and marking the king's recovery to health, "The Genius of Britain", was sung in the Bath Theatre by Charles Incledon and was reported in the Bath Chronicle, but does not appear to have survived.
