A Thought in Sickness

Introduction
When rising from the bed of death, a setting of Addison’s ‘Thought in Sickness’, is by John Pixell, vicar of Edgbaston near Birmingham. It is a fine example of the orchestrally-accompanied solo song, written in an idiom mainly derived from Geminiani and Thomas Arne, and was probably written for one of the orchestral societies in the Birmingham area.
