Item Number: HL.48008906

8.25x11.75 inches.

For unison/optional three part voices and piano

Text: Shakespeare

Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes

Difficulty level: 1

This was originally one of three settings of Shakespeare texts by different composers - the others being Kodály and Poulenc. It is classic Britten: lovely singable lines, colourful piano part and a highly effective division into three parts at the end in the revised version. It would programme well with The Oxen.

Duration: 1 minute
