This is the first of the eleven settings of poems from A. E. Housman’s "A Shropshire Lad" that Butterworth published between 1911 and 1912. He subsequently composed the "Rhapsody, A Shropshire Lad" developing the material from this song for full orchestra and at greater length. This little transcription of the song for wind quintet can thus be seen as a cut-down version, in all senses, of that rhapsody.
Butterworth was killed by a sniper in 1916 during the battle of the Somme. He was awarded the Military Cross for bravery during a previous action, but he did not live to receive it. He is, inevitably, one of the great might-have-beens of early twentieth century English music.
