Programme Notes

These are the same ‘Flower Songs’ as recorded on the Naxos Pigs Could Fly CD and are settings of poems by Robert Herrick (1591-1674).  The music by Corp has an immediacy yet wistfulness that seem aptly to match the poetry’s playful and buoyant imagery of transience and loss – youthful days pass, life passes.

1   To Daffodils
2   To Violets
3   The Primrose
4   To Daisies, not to shut so soon
5   To a Bed of Tulips

The songs are mostly in unison, with the third and fifth ones dividing into two parts.
