Op.70f - Birthday Garland: 6 The Nightingale has a Lyre of Gold
Song 6 from The Weston Cycle
"Sudden Light" (song 5) is too sad to finish this cycle, and a second bird-related text presented itself with a link to music-making too. It opens "come campane" - like bells; the voice and left hand part are in canon whilst the bells toll through various keys. The songs of the three birds are hinted at rather than explicitly stated; A more excited style, and key change, is used to indicate the part of the blackbird’s role in the story of the lovers/ When the lovers are ’together’, the music returns to C major, and with a brief return of the opening melody in the left hand, we finish quietly, serenely, and happily.
