This English folk song, also commonly sung throughout the American Revolutionary War, tells the unfortunate eternal story of soldiers going off to war, leaving loved ones at home. René Clausen artfully uses the soprano sax to establish the sad, melancholy emotion of the text while the voices reflect the emotions of those left behind.
