Description

Cecil Armstrong Gibbs was a prolific and versatile English composer of the 20th century. Gibbs is best known for his output of songs, but he also wrote a considerable amount of music for the amateur choirs that he conducted. His reputation as a song-writer largely lies in his natural gift for text setting – he insisted on giving priority to the words over the music and had very clear musical ideas on what a song should be.

These principles prevailed when writing The Cherry Tree in 1949 – the Voice is clearly put to the foreground, with the Piano only supporting the singer in the background, so a confident and capable performance is needed from the soloist. Words by Margaret Rose. Performance time approximately 3 minutes.
