BRIGHT PHEOBUS. English, Air (3/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. A very popular hunting song (featuring imitative sounds) that appears in a great many songsheets, printed folios, and musicians' manuscript collections on both sides of the Atlantic. It was composed by James Hook (1746-1827)

Bright Phoebus has mounted the Chariot of Day,
And the Horns and the Hounds call each sportsman a-way.
Through meadows and woods with speed now they bound,
Whilst health, rosy health, is in exercise found.

Printed source: O'Farrell (Pocket Companion, vol. III), 1808; pp. 26-27.
