A Lincolnshire Posy, considered Grainger's masterpiece, was composed for concert band in 1937. The work is composed of six movements, each adapted from folk songs that Grainger had collected on a 1905–1906 trip to Lincolnshire, England. Grainger maintained the personality and quirks of each singer he heard on his trip, creating a a musical portrait of the singer's personality and musical style.

Lisbon (a.k.a. Dublin Bay) is the The first movement of a Lincolnshire Posy is the shortest—a brisk, simple, lilted melody in 6/8 time. This movement ends in a serene, suspended pianissimo that contrasts the general tone of the movement as a whole.
