Judith Weir: Much of my non-operatic work for solo voice occupies an area between folk music and cabaret. In 1990 I began a personal project, which is still going on today, to write as many songs as I could with the word 'horse' in the title. This short preliminary set was collected together and orchestrated for a Spitalfields Festival concert in 1996. It was written for the soprano Jane Manning, her ensemble Jane's Minstrels and their conductor Roger Montgomery.
Text: Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Scottish Folk Text and Wang Wei.
