Composer: Joseph Corfe (arr.) (1740 - 1820)
Forces: S.A.T.B. + reduction
Lyrics: William Shakespeare
Corfe, organist of Salisbury Cathedral, 1792 - 1804, issued two sets of "Twelve glees.... composed from ancient Scotch melodies" in the early 1790s, to satisfy two contemporary enthusiasms: that for mixed sex social music, and that for all things North-British. The current arrangement comes from the second set, and is not of Scottish origin, but a setting of Shakespeare. It is not known whether the piece is Corfe's own, or the arrangement of another composer's setting. The latter is more probable.
