Original

My musical setting for one of the best known poems from A. E. Housman's A Shropshire Lad. The melody is my reworking of the old sea song The Flying Cloud. Written for male tenor. the voice in this sound file simulated by cello, though probably higher than a cello would easily play. The piano accompaniment has been called too heavy, but I wanted a heavy effect. comments on this would be welcome. The lyrics are on the. pdf score but for convenience are also given below.
