The Fallow  Deer

The fallow deer at the lonely house

Poem by Thomas Hardy,

music composed and performed

by David W Solomons

One without looks in tonight

Through the curtain chink

From the sheet of glistening white

As we sit and think by the fender brink

We do not discern those eyes

Watching in the snow

Lit by lamps of rosy dyes

Wondering, aglow,

Four-footed, tiptoe

This setting is for tenor and alto unaccompanied.

A very gentle setting for a gentle poem.

The pdf of the score and a recording of the first performance is available  here
