One verse admires the spectacular Roubiliac statue of Handel which graced an area near where the orchestra played:
As still amaz’d I’m straying
O’er this inchanted Grove
I spy a Harper playing
All in his proud Alcove
I doff my Hat desireing
He’d tune up Buxom Joan
But what was I admiring
Odzooks a man of Stone.
Thomas Gladwin was an organist and composer at Vauxhall from 1738 until 1744. James Worgan (1715-1753) was also an organist at Vauxhall during the 1730s and his brother Dr John Worgan (1724-1790) took over as organist in 1751, as well as being director of the music for a year and an ‘in house’ composer at Vauxhall.
