Stevens : Sigh no more, ladies : Full score
Composer: Richard John Samuel Stevens (1757 - 1837)
Forces: A.T.T.T.B. (or S.S.A.T.B.)
Lyrics: William Shakespeare
Stevens originally composed this glee for men's voices. At the request of one Miss Thurlows, he subsequently adapted it for a mixed choir, by transposing it up a fifth and revising some of the dispositions. Both versions are available here.
When the latter version was published it was reviewed in The Analytical Review in the following terms: "The harmony of this composition is so good as to exhibit the perfect theorist; also in its melody it displays a tolerable imagination; and is calculated to please both the learned and unlearned hearer".
