Callcott : You gentlemen on t'other side : Printable cover page
Composer: John Wall Callcott (1766 - 1821)
Callcott's glee, "You gentlemen of England" appeared c.1794, and achieved instant popularity, being incorporated into several theatrical productions, and attaining the status of a national air. This parody (words of unknown authorship, fitted to Callcott's music by Samuel Wesley) was issued in 1804 at the zenith of recruitment of volunteers to counter the threat of invasion; a threat dispersed in the following year as a result of the Battle of Trafalgar.
