"Another genre he [Haydn]took up again owing to the influence of a lady was the solo song. The muse was Anne Hunter (1742-1821), another well-to-do widow (of the famous surgeon John Hunter) and a minor poet, who supplied the texts for at least nine of Haydn's 14 songs in English; 12 appeared as two sets of Original Canzonettas in 1794¡5. He also composed numerous arias, divertimentos, marches, canons and other works". New Grove Dictionary of Music.
