Between 1790 and 1860 vocal composition was the most popular type of music. These consisted of art, popular, and patriotic songs with piano accompaniment. The texts touched on topics such as love, absence, war or patriotism, and the human emotions connected with these subjects. Not surprisingly the approaches largely mirrored traditions of England, continental Europe, and increasingly in the nineteenth century those of the United States of America. Sometimes, though, these universal themes were placed within a clear Canadian context beyond that of being produced by a composer born or resident in Canada at the time.
