The Lass of Richmond Hill
A way of celebrating national identity was to place a love-story in a picturesque British rural setting. The most famous song of this type is James Hook’s The Lass of Richmond Hill, published in 1789 and said to have been sung by James Incledon (1763-1829) at Vauxhall Gardens. Its delightful orchestral setting features viola obbligato with pairs of flutes and horns supported by pizzicato violins and basses.
