This work is available from Boosey & Hawkes for the world.
This setting of a poem by Robert Bridges is a short but highly effective part song which needs tenors capable of sustaining high A flats for a number of beats, and basses who are able to sustain high D flats quite gently. As with all this kind of music, it is the quality of interaction which counts in performance, and voices should be well matched between all parts to achieve the best results. It is an interesting supplement to the Bridges settings in the Seven Part Songs.
