Misremembered Hills (take 2)

A work in (slow) progress…

On Bredon Hill (A.E. Housman – Harley)

Bonny Boy (traditional, from the singing of Fred Jordan). Also known as ‘The Trees Are Growing High’ or similar.

Castles & Kings (Harley)

Carpentry (Harley)  – an instrumental version of the tune I used for ‘The Carpenter’s Son’, a setting of Housman’s poem.

Tears of morning (A.E. Housman – Harley)

Thomas Anderson (Harley, but based on an article by Ron Nurse)

Wrekin (Harley)

Breathe, my lute (A.E. Housman – Harley)

The Pilgrim (W.B. Yeats – Harley)

A smugglers’ song (Kipling-Harley)

When I was (Housman-Harley)

Swifts and Swans (Harley-Yeats): the instrumental introduction is called ‘Swifts’, leading into my setting of ‘The Wild Swans at Coole’

(better take):
