Arrangement dating from 1957 of a song from Britten's 1953 opera Gloriana. It was recorded by Peter Pears and Julian Bream and often included in their recital programmes. Julian Bream has applied minor revisions for the present publication.


The standard for both the singer and the guitarist is grade VIII; the vocalist needs good breath control to tackle the florid runs, and a keen ear to pitch the intervals correctly...... making it a piece that is both musically and intellectually challenging.
