Another Spring

Song-cycle for mezzo-soprano and piano to words by Walter de la Mare

1. Poetry
2. Another Spring
3. Afraid

Songs commissioned by the Chichester Festival for the concert in honour of Dean Walter Hussey's retirement, are dedicated to Dame Janet Baker.
The three poems are by Walter de la Mare with whom I have long felt a certain affinity.  
They come from a volume called 'The Inward Companion' in which most of the poems were written late in his life and are a good example of his gift for saying a great deal in very few words.
