A tender and light but reverent setting by Hugh Roberton for two-part chorus and Piano accompaniment. Based on a wonderful poem by Katharine Tynan, this memorable song is steeped with pastoral imagery and natural energy.
This is a beautiful song that is rarely heard niwadays. It has a haunting, gentle melody line. The harmonies are interesting but not too demanding. There is plenty of scope for dynamics to add further interest. The accompaniment is straightforward and is not intrusive. Anonymous
