To supply this demand ... is the object of the present publication, which, it is hoped, may aid in removing two principal obstacles that have heretofore prevented the general introduction of glee singing ... 1st The cost ...[and] 2nd. The objectionable quality of the words ... A few pieces are designed for men's voices only ... but ... in general to the four usual parts ... The music in this book is intended to be strictly vocal - hence a separate accompaniment ... was thought to be unnecessary ... Many of the pieces, although orignally written for a single voice on each part, may be sung with pleasing effect in chorus ... the number [of glees from England] is very great ...
