        Thomson.—Masque of Alfred. A national song of England.
  [The poet wrote the Masque conjointly with Mallet, and it contains this song. Mr. Bolton Corney ascribes it to Mallet; but Turle and Taylor, in the People’s Music Book, p. 253, and Dr. Johnson, think otherwise; and the generally received opinion is, that it is the production of Thomson.]  2
