GLEES & PARTSONGS (18th C. and Romantic)
See also
Shakespeare Songs for modern partsongs.
*Glees come in all shapes and sizes and form a valuable body of worthwhile secular repertoire linking Renaissance Madrigals to Romantic and Modern Partsongs.
For purists, Classical Glees of the Georgian/Regency period should be interpreted by solo singers, as they often call for a high degree of flexibility and even ornamentation, but many are also well suited to choirs.
Partsongs, on the other hand, which began to be composed in the early Romantic period, and with which Glees fought an ultimately losing battle, were usually simpler, often strophic, and intended for choirs.

TIP: to listen to and follow the scores of some of the Georgian Glees from the catalogue, please visit the DoveMus Georgian Glees playlist on youtube or follow the indivdual links below.
