for SSSAAA unaccompanied
Published for the very first time, this is a beautiful arrangement of the old German tune 'Lasst uns das Kindlein Wiegan', setting words adapted from an old Scots poem by Ursula Wood. With flowing contrapuntal lines and characteristic harmonies, O my dear heart will be popular with all upper-voice choirs.
Vaughan Williams has come to be regarded as one of the finest British composers of the 20th century. He has a particularly wide-ranging catalogue of works, including choral works, symphonies, concerti, and opera. His searching and visionary imagination, combined with a flexibility in writing for all levels of music-making, has meant that his music is as popular today as it ever has been.
