Repertoire Note

Choral level of difficulty: Level 1 (5 greatest)

This was originally one of three settings of Shakespeare texts by different composers – the others being Kodály and Poulenc. It is classic Britten: lovely singable lines, colourful piano part and a highly effective division into three parts at the end in the revised version.
