SSAA choir (with piano) - Medium
Composed by Michael Cleveland (arranger). Folk songs. Choral octavo. With Text language: English. Published by Treble Clef Music Press (TC.TC-163).

Item Number: TC.TC-163

This frankly sentimental Irish ballad of long-lost love has appealing double descants, independent four-part writing for a full soprano and alto range, yummy harmonies and voicing, and an irresistible choral cadenza which imitates the easy movement of the waving grass. Regretful but never self-pitying, the Yeats poem concludes, "But I was young and foolish, and now am full of tears." SSAA and piano; 8 pages; duration: 4:00 min.; range: f# to g"; difficulty: medium.
