Misc. Comments

  • The score is in 2 treble clefs and 2 bass clefs. The range of the 3rd part is E above middle C, to 1st line B.
  • Glee Clubs were historically all-male, particularly in the 1800s, so this has been tagged for male choir, since that is the most likely original voicing. That also makes more sense of the clefs used, since TTBB would use 2 treble clefs and 2 bass clefs.
