English composer Joseph Mazzinghi (1765-1844) studied under J. C. Bach, was music director and harpsichordist of the King's Theatre, and taught piano (among his students was the Princess of Wales). He wrote stage works, instrumental works for amateurs, and variations and arrangements for piano, harp and flute. He also wrote many songs. Of these, Ye Shepherds Tell Me may have enjoyed greatest and longest-lasting favor.
