About this work
Op.17 "Break, break, break" is a slow and thoughtful part-song for unaccompanied men's voices (TTBB), displaying many of CBR's characteristic vocal harmonies. We have no information about the work's previous performance history, but its original publication only in Sol-fa notation must have limited its appeal and circulation.
Long out of print, the sheet music for this part-song was originally published by Weekes & Co. in 1906 as No. 35 of "Weekes & Co.'s Series of Anthems and Part Songs in the Tonic Sol-fa notation". However the 1906 edition was available only in the Tonic Sol-fa notation, so this new online edition offers the first opportunity to view the score in traditional staff notation.
