1733, Jan 171795, Nov 19
an English tenor and musician active in Bath, Somerset. As a composer, Linley wrote and arranged some songs and ensembles for The Duenna in 1775. An earlier composition, Thomas Hull's The Royal Merchant, performed at Covent Garden in 1767, was noted as a failure as well as a success. An unnamed critic wrote in The London Stage that "The music may be good, but the piece is trifling and childish". In 1786 he collaborated with John Burgoyne on the successful Richard Coeur de lion.
