Likewise just an opinion. To me this epitomises the theatrical tunes flying about in the early 18th century, as do the pastoral words. It was extremely popular in those 18th century upmarket songsters as well as on later broadsides aimed at a lesser audience. Why is it 'doubtful that a town composer made it'?
