Holst, G: I Love My Love TTBBPiano

Books | Men's Voices

Composer: Gustav Holst
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

In his use of authentic Englsh folksongs, Gnostic texts and Vedic hymns, one can discern Holst’s search for a compositional Voice beyond the constraints of the European canon in the early 1900’s. In 1916 he published Six Choral Folk Songs, of which Cornish folk tune I Love My Love is the fifth number.The song is a tale of a girl ‘in Bedlam’ who awaits her love’s return from the sea. It moves into Dorian mode and out again with a particularly effective sighing motif in the middle section. Gustav Holst has earned a place among the most revered of late 19th and early 20th century composers and is best known for his enduring Orchestral suite The Planets.
