The words for this cycle are drawn from poems by Philip Larkin. There are three lyrics about the natural world and two typically down-beat townscapes, framed and linked with a setting of the visionary final lines fo the title poem. The whole suggests a musical form as close to a Baroque cantata as to later song cycles.
