Percy M. Young (editor) : The English Glee : SATB : 01 Songbook : 0193437538

Percy M. Young (editor) : The English Glee

In the period between the deaths of Handel and Mendelssohn, the glee was the vehicle by which secular part-singing was carried in England. The form is descended from the madrigal, with texts chosen partly in reaction against the vulgarity of the catch. This new history of the glee begins with an introductory essay detailing the form's historical, musical, and social context. Young has selected twenty-six settings, mainly in four parts but with examples in three and five parts, to show the breadth of the glee in its heyday. A unique feature of the form, and of this collection, is the high literary quality of the text and the high musical quality of the settings. This fine new volume is an essential addition to the choral repertory, and is uniform with the other indispensable Oxford classic choral collections: English Romantic Partsongs, The Oxford Book of English Madrigals, The Oxford Book of French Chansons, The Oxford Book of Italian Madrigals, and The Catch Book.

Songlist: The Love Rapture , Death's Final Conquest, The Rose, The Poor Soul Sat Sighing, Thyrsis, When He Left Me, Hark, The Lark, Susanna And The Two Elders, Long May Live My Lovely Hetty, Lady Anne Bothwell's Lament, Ring Out Ye Crystal Spheres, The Nightingale, Take, O Take Those Lips Away, Slow, Slow, Fresh Fount, O Poesy, Here In Cool Grot, Hail! Hallow'd Fane!, Elegy For Cymbeline, Poor Barbara, Merrily Push Round The Glass , Ring Out Ye Crystal Spheres, Under The Greenwood Tree, Hail! Smiling Mourn, Doubt Thou The Stars Are Fire, Ye Spotted Snakes, When From The Skies Divine Cecilia Came, Divine Cecilia
