Bath composer Thomas Linley the younger (1756 - 1778) was known as the “English Mozart”. He composed violin sonatas and concertos as well as choral works, and provided most of the music for his brother-in-law Richard Brinsley Sheridan's opera The Duenna. Among his surviving works is the Ode on the Spirits of Shakespeare, the Lyric Ode (1776), set to a text by his fellow-Bathonian French Laurence.
