For SS and piano. Chilcott's rare gift for crafting the most poignant and beguiling melodies is rarely more apparent than in his setting of this enchanting and enigmatic medieval poem. The style is akin to folk ballad, lyrical with just a hint of melancholy, which will draw in singers and listeners alike. This is beautiful and seductive upper-voice music. A version for SATB is also available.
