Seven Songs

The seven songs collected in this volume are for Soprano and Piano

 

Gertrude's Prayer (Rudyard Kipling)


Harp Song of the Dane Women (Rudyard Kipling)


Infant Song - John Bishop commented;

This rather sinister song is written out in three simultaneous keys: one each for the two hands of the piano, on one for the vocal line.  This, however, is not an exercise in perversity; it really works!


Legend of Rosemary (Reginald Arkell)


My Boy Jack (Thomas Hardy)


Stop All The Clocks (Funeral Blues) (W H Auden)


The Bakery (Traditional Chinese)
