Jackson (of Exeter) : Whilst from our looks : Score, part(s) and cover page
Composer: William Jackson (of Exeter) (1730 - 1803)
Lyrics: Matthew Prior
Elegy II from Jackson's Elegies, Op. 3, 1762.
In his frontispiece, Jackson specified performance in the following terms: "I would just observe, that the following pieces will lose their effect, when the parts are doubled. The manner of performance that I would recommend, is by three voices singing moderately soft, and accompanied with any bass instrument that may have the effect of an accompaniment only; for nothing hurts a piece so much, as making a part principal, or even equal with others, when it was intended to be subservient. The equality of strength among the voices should also be observed; if one voice of the three be strong, and the others weak, it is necessary to soften it down, that the balance may not be destroyed; for it should always be remembered, that as no principal part was intended, there must be none produced".
