Boyce was an "English composer, organist and editor. Though formerly best known for some of his anthems and his editing of Cathedral Music (1760–73), the significant contribution he made to instrumental music, song, secular choral and theatre music in England is now widely recognized ... First performed in December 1749, [The Chaplet, an] all-sung pastoral afterpiece, with its witty exploitation of the popular ballad style, was an immediate success and held its place in the repertory until the 1780s." Robert J. Bruce and Ian Bartlett in Grove Music Online.
