ENGLISH SONG: REMEMBER Text: Christina Rossetti (1830-1894) Music: Gerald Manning

Composed in April 2008

The folk music of England evolved over the centuries to produce a quintessentially English quality that bore no resemblance to the folk music of any other land. The use of poetry was a powerful influence on the character of the English song and composers continually strove to fit the music closely to the poetry to add pathos to the words. In Henry Lawes collection of �Ayres and Dialogues� there are many fine examples of the marriage of sound to sense and Lawes desired to �set words with just note and accent.� Christina Rossetti�s verse is remarkable for its love of verbal invention and of metrical experiment. In both her religious and her secular poetry she shows a keen interest in natural pictorial imagery.
