for mezzo-soprano and piano
Song cycle originally scored for tenor and harp. These songs are among Berkeley's earliest compositions, written at the suggestion of Peter Pears. The poems, by Thomas Hardy, were chosen for various treatments of one theme - death, and the grave. Some are wistful, some tragic, some humorous.
