Mary Goetze presents here a setting of the most familiar variant of this traditional folk ballad, in which two lovers make impossible requests of each other. The texture shifts from homophonic to imitative counterpoint. Brief dissonances created and resolved by stepwise progression of the accompanying voices reflect the bitter-sweetness of the text.
For SSA Choir a cappella.
