Programme Note:

William Blake’s Songs of Innocence of 1789 have been set to music by
several composers, including Ralph Vaughan Williams, Benjamin Britten and
William Bolcom. Here, I have selected five of these poems for a “baroque”
setting, suitable for either mezzo-soprano or counter-tenor, with cello and
harpsichord.
