Repertoire Note

Choral level of difficulty: Level 1 (5 greatest)

Britten made many folk song arrangements throughout his life with those from the British Isles becoming particularly popular. Imogen Holst, Britten’s amanuensis for many years, made an arrangement of this song for SSA which simply fills out the harmony for the lower parts in well-written singing lines.
