Ten Housman songs
In 1988 I bought my first books from the Folio Society; one was Housman’s A Shropshire Lad. Over the next couple of years these settings took shape; they put new wind in my composing sails.
When I was one and twenty: a song for tenor voice and piano using words by A E Housman from ‘A Shropshire Lad’. P1 of the score can be found via this link.
